Jail time for managers in immigrant-Hiring conspiracy

Three former managers from the Guilderland plant of crate manufacturer IFCO Systems, headquartered in Houston, pleaded guilty to conspiring to hire illegal workers. The pleas followed a national investigation—prompted by a tip from a Guilderland employee—that found that more than half of IFCO’s nearly 6,000 employees in 2005 had invalid or mismatched Social Security numbers.

The investigation led to raids in 26 states, resulting in the arrests of seven managers plus 1,187 illegal workers, who were later deported. The former managers face fines plus jail terms of up to 10 years.
