An Indian Kansas couple pleaded guilty in federal court to unlawfully employing undocumented workers. The husband pleaded guilty to engaging in a pattern or practice of employing illegal workers and failure to collect federal income and Social Security taxes. His wife pleaded guilty to an unlicensed money remitting business charge. As part of their plea agreements, the couple agreed to forfeit more than $700,000 in cash, money from bank accounts, and gold seized by the government in this case. Those assets represent proceeds of their unlawful activities.

This case arose when inspectors from the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Alcohol Beverage Control division observed employees at the Route 56 Express gas station and convenience store in McPherson selling tobacco products to minors. The investigators determined that several employees at Route 56 Express were not lawfully in the United States, nor were they authorized to be employed. Local and federal investigators then assisted, which led to the return of the federal indictments in June.

These charges carry maximum penalties of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The couple’s sentencings are set for November 25.

    That is actually a piece of good news. I'm now currently informing authorities on the immigration lawyer (won't tell his name), who is definitely committing fraud by doing the same thing. He will soon go to prison and will learn what a "prison wagon" is LOL. Watch the news guys
