A Texas company and a field operations supervisor stand accused of conspiring to harbor and transport Mexican workers living in Williamsport but not permitted to live or work in the U.S., employing them as part of a team doing seismic and surface mapping surveys for the oil and gas industry.

GPX, a seismic surveying company based in Sealy, Texas, and its field operations supervisor, Douglas C. Wiggill, 42, of Fort Worth, Texas, are named in a grand jury indictment charging the company and Wiggill with harboring and transporting illegal aliens and conspiracy to commit those offenses, according to U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith.
.
.
According to the indictment, GPX executed a contractor compliance agreement certifying that all personnel were authorized to work legally in the U.S. when, in fact, they were not, Smith said.

Federal officials were not aware of the Mexicans living in the city until city police arrested one of the workers, Adrian Arriaga-Castro, 27 at the time, the night of June 23, 2011. He was accused of alleging luring a 12-year-old city girl into his pickup truck and harassing her
.
.
If convicted, Wiggill faces a maximum sentence on all 20 counts of the indictment of 100 years in prison, a fine of $5 million, a supervised release term of 60 years and a special assessment of $2,000. GPX also faces a possible maximum fine of $10 million, a probation term of five years on each count and a special assessment of $8,000.

The company in question obviously hasn't coughed up enough $$$ to Rat Party Headquarters because we know that in *ordinary* circumstances "undocumented workers" are just the most wonderful folks.With Osama Obama & Friends it's always "follow the money".
