Looking For Fake Green Cards
The federal government
is reportedly stepping up its efforts to find illegal immigrants
working at airlines and maintenance facilities at airports around
the country. This, after six mechanics used fake immigration
documents to obtain their FAA maintenance tickets.
The six are among 28 illegal immigrants caught up in a March 8th
sweep at Timco Aviation Services in Greensboro, NC.
We are continuing our investigation," said DOT Agent John Long
in an interview with USA Today. "If (workers') documents are
fraudulent, we don't know who they are."
But Timco President Gil West said the fake documents were so
skillfully produced that he doesn't know what more he could have
done to identify the illegal aliens.
"We are going to need
additional tools to prevent people like that from getting hired,"
he told USA Today. West and Timco cooperated with the federal
investigation. Neither has been charged.
