ICE Press Release: Owner of 3 Virginia restaurants arrested for harboring undocumented aliens

Rate this Entry

The following is an ICE press release:

Fairfax, Va. - Kiet Boc Bui, a resident of Centerville, Va. and the
owner of three Viet House restaurants in Virginia, was arrested
yesterday on charges of knowingly employing and harboring illegal aliens
after an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE).



"ICE aggressively targets employers who violate immigration laws by
knowingly employing an illegal alien workforce," said John P. Torres,
special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Homeland Security
Investigations (HSI) in Washington, D.C. "No industry is immune to
following the law. Businesses that use illegal alien workers must
understand that they will be held accountable for those unlawful
practices."



According to court documents, between approximately April 5, 2005,
and April 20, 2010, Bui allegedly knowingly employed and harbored
illegal aliens not authorized to work in the United States. He allegedly
employed at least seven illegal aliens and paid the workers in cash. In
addition, he is alleged to have not kept payroll records for those
employees and allegedly did not report the workers to the Virginia
Employment Commission.



According to court documents, Bui allegedly had not filed an I-9 form
for any of the employees who were paid in cash. Employers are required
to complete this employment eligibility verification form within three
business days after an employee is hired.



The case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant U. S. Attorney
Joseph V. Moreno and Assistant U. S. Attorney Gordon Kromberg. ICE has
developed a comprehensive worksite enforcement strategy that promotes
national security, protects critical infrastructure and ensures fair
labor standards. ICE's worksite enforcement investigations focus on
egregious employers involved in criminal activity or worker
exploitation.
