A tree-trimming company based in Houston reached a $2 million settlement agreement with the Department of Homeland Security that will allow it to avoid criminal prosecution for hiring illegal immigrants, officials announced Friday.
The agreement capped an investigation into ABC Professional Tree Services Inc. that dates to early 2008, when Homeland Security Investigations agents in Alabama were tipped off that the company was hiring illegal immigrants.
The company, which trims trees and vegetation for electric utilities in more than a dozen states, made about $2 million between 2005 and 2011 from the work of illegal immigrants, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

I agree, but it never happens.
Northern liberals are heading south as well. The upside is that its turning the midwest conservative.
That's the Feds fault!
I was in a restaurant in LA last week. They are short handed because they can't hire waiters or busboys!
Nobody wants a job!!!!except illegal aliens!!!
Are you a Texas employer?
The employers want low wage illegal workers, because the are able to pay them much less. They want employees who think company benefits mean 10 minute breaks, who think 7 bucks an hour is great money, many times what they were making in Mehico, while receiving additional prizes, free medical care etc...All on the tax payers backs.
You cannot possibly be this ignorant.
When I moved from Texas to Wisconsin and Minnesota, and other states in that as yet non-Hispanic region at that time, I noticed that all of the jobs were getting done, restaurants, car washes, landscaping, all done by white Americans, just like in my native Houston Texas until mass immigration changed it.
Exact same in CA. Then when the corrupt government opened the borders for millions of low wage illegals, guess who took all the jobs formally held by the white folk?
We all know this, even lonestar knows this. Only those drooling in cups buys his cheet.
