Le Grande Tetons, LLC, a company that owns and operates Twin Peaks, a sports bar/restaurant with two locations in Wichita, Kansas, pleaded guilty in federal court to hiring undocumented workers.

In September 2013, ICE conducted a Form I-9 inspection at the two Twin Peaks Wichita locations and identified more than 20 unauthorized workers. Afterwards, a Twin Peaks manager agreed to immediately fire the employees, but, in fact, rehired many of these employees. Thereafter, federal search warrants were executed at both Twin Peaks locations in July 2014.

As a result of a plea agreement in the case, the court imposed a fine of $50,000 on the company. According to the plea agreement, the U.S. Attorney’s Office agreed not to pursue any additional charges against the owners, current employees or former employees of Le Grande Tetons, with the exception of two former management employees who remain under federal investigation.

This investigation is an example of ICE’s new policy to emphasize criminal investigations of those employees who flaunt the law by not rehiring or discharging undocumented workers.
