A Mississippi business owner was arrested and pled guilty to hiring illegal aliens for personal gain.
Hector Valdez-Leora pleaded guilty on May 24 to harboring illegal immigrants for commercial advantage and private financial gain.
Hector Valdez-Loera is the owner of Madison Concrete who hired illegal aliens that were using fake social security numbers. Authorities say he failed to use the “E-verify” system to authenticate his employees work status, and even helped at least two of his illegal employees obtain housing.
Madison Concrete was owned and operated by Hector Valdez-Loera and that Valdez-Loera hired illegal aliens who either had social security numbers that did not exist or belonged to someone deceased. He failed to check E-Verify to determine legitimacy of his workers and referred to them as subcontractors, when they were in fact his employees. The investigation also revealed that Valdez-Loera provided his financial information to obtain housing for at least two of his illegal alien employees.

Authorities stumbled upon Valdez-Loera’s illegal worker-ring when they went to locate a man who had an “order removal” for illegally reentering the U.S.
While at the man’s house, authorities found several more illegal aliens living there. They told authorities that the man they were searching for was at work.
