Hello, my name is Volodya.
I am looking for work.
A Grandy Jury indicted [the labor recruiting companies hired by] Keppel AmFELS for hiring 41 illegal aliens to work on the SBX platform:
The three-year investigation leading to this indictment was initiated in September 2004 with a comprehensive sweep of the day shift employees working on the SBX project for possible document fraud in September 2004 by special agents of the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) with the assistance of the Social Security Administration Office of Inspector General, Department of Defense Office of Inspector General, Texas Department of Public Safety and Customs and Border Protection.
That sweep resulted in the identification of 41 illegal aliens working on the SBX platform. Of the forty-one, twenty-three were employed through the labor lease contracts with Port Fabricators.
Now, I dunno about you, but it seems to me that a “critical national asset” that must be crewed by licensed merchant mariners with security clearances probably should not have had undocumented workers crawling over it.
Sorry about sticking Keppel AmFels in the first draft of this.
