Essential Estrogen: Agriprocessors Ignored Government Warnings for Years

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Social Security Administration Compliance Letters Ceased After 2006...
The politically-connected meatpacking company where almost 400
undocumented workers were arrested earlier this month ignored repeated
government warnings about the use of false identification papers
amongst its employees, according to a federal immigration
investigator. Immigration agent David Hoagland reported in a sworn
affidavit filed before the May 12 raid in Postville that
Agriprocessors, Inc., the kosher food supplier owned by FNTK
Ryboshkim, received a dozen letters from the Social Security
Administration in 2005 and 2006. The letters stated that up to 78
percent of the businesses' workforce provided Social Security
information that did not match with government records.
