Nine employees of a San Diego, California party supplies rental company were arrested as part of a crackdown on illegal hiring at military bases and other high-security workplaces. The employees, arrested at Classic Party Rentals have been returned to their native Mexico.
The company does work at the Marine Corps’ Air Station Miramar in San Diego. An audit of the company had found that 30 of the 105 employees at Classic Party Rentals were in the United States illegally.
Authorities do not plan to prosecute the company because the employees presented fake legal resident cards when they applied for their jobs.
