    Federal utility gets $3.5m in tree firmís immigration case

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ó A federal utility has received $3.5 million in a settlement with a tree-trimming firm that pleaded guilty in a scheme to employ thousands of people in the country illegally.


    A Tennessee Valley Authorityís Office of Inspector General report says Asplundh (AHí-splund) Tree Expert Co. has already paid the utility.

    Prosecutors say Asplundh ďremained willfully blindĒ while managers hired workers they knew to be in the country illegally.

    The suburban Philadelphia-based company pleaded guilty in September. A federal judge sentenced Asplundh to pay $95 million. Prosecutors say itís the largest monetary penalty ever levied in an immigration case.

    Of the $95 million, $15 million satisfied civil claims about the companyís failure to comply with immigration law. That included $3.6 million to TVA, with 3 percent going to the U.S. Justice Department.

    The 3% going to US Justice Department needs to go DIRECTLY into a deportation fund and alleviate the costs to US taxpayers deporting these criminal illegal alien trespassers!
