MISSOURI FORCED TO COMPENSATE STATE CONTRACTOR TARGETED IN IMMIGRATION STING

Rate this Entry

States that decide they should be getting in to the immigration enforcement business might take note. From the AP:

A Missouri trial judge Wednesday ordered the state to pay $152,000
for illegally terminating a janitorial company's state contracts when
the firm was targeted by an immigration sting.

Cole County Judge
Richard Callahan concluded the company could not have known some
employees were illegal immigrants and ordered the payment for breach of
contract. Callahan also ordered the state to remove the company from a
list of firms ineligible for future state contracts.

Missouri
canceled nine contracts with Oklahoma-based Sam's Janitorial Services
after state and federal authorities detained about two dozen of the
company's Jefferson City workers during a March 2007 immigration sting.
The janitorial service, which also cleaned buildings in Kansas City and
Columbia, was then banned from applying for new state contracts.

On
the night of the raid, then-Gov. Matt Blunt called a news conference
and signed an executive order that directed state agencies to cancel
any contract with companies found to employ illegal immigrants.

Ultimately, only a few of the janitors caught in the sting were found guilty or pleaded guilty to any crimes.
