It does happen — sometimes
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – A Macoupin (muh-KOO’-pin) County restaurant owner who pleaded guilty to federal charges that he employed illegal immigrants is headed to prison. A federal judge in Springfield sentenced 34-year-old Besim Tabaku (bess-SEEM’ tah-BAH’-coo) to a five-month sentence and $27,000 in fines.
Tabaku pleaded guilty in August to unlawfully employing undocumented workers found at his Toni’s Family Restaurant in Mount Clare in May. The workers were paid in cash and lived at a home Tabaku owned.
All of the workers were later deported to Mexico. Tabaku told the judge he had come to the U.S. in 1999 as a political asylum seeker from Albania.
Albanians do seem to be big on crookedness. In Australia at one time they were big on welfare fraud and crashing cars for the insurance money. Yes. I know that Mother Teresa was an Albanian. But I won’t go into that here. Hitchens is a good start for those of a critical mind, however.
