    Undocumented Workers Arrested At Camp Lejeune

    http://www.wral.com/apncnews/4870960/detail.html

    CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. -- An anonymous tip triggered an investigation of undocumented workers at Camp Lejeune, resulting in 40 people being detained and a federal investigation, a base spokesman said.

    Camp Lejeune officials detained 27 people at base gates during security checks Wednesday and another 12 at various construction sites Monday, 1st Lt. Clark Carpenter said Thursday.

    Military investigators went to the site of the new primary school at 10:30 a.m. Monday and apprehended five undocumented workers, Carpenter said. Checks at other construction sites that same day found another seven.

    That caused the base to step up inspections at a number of gates Wednesday and the additional arrests.

    The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Wilmington is handling the investigation now, Carpenter said.

    Details on where the workers are from, how they got on base and what will happen to them now were not immediately made available.

    Sue Brown, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security office in Atlanta, said Immigration and Customs Enforcement is not commenting now because the investigation is ongoing. Carpenter declined to mention any contractors by name, saying only that investigators were "looking into the practices of several contractors right now." Work on base projects will continue, he added.

    According to the Defense Department, Tyler, Texas-based C Construction Co., Inc., was awarded $23.6 million last year to perform construction and demolition of the mainside primary and mainside intermediate schools at Camp Lejeune, including the new Carla Johnson Primary School.

    Company officials declined to comment on whether their workers were arrested.

    The arrests mark the second time this year that undocumented workers have been apprehended on a North Carolina military installation. In July, about 50 people were arrested at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro.

    How the hell did illegal aliens get into Camp Lejeune? I've been their like a dozen of times and that place is very well guarded. I needed to show my military ID and everything. Do they accept Matricula Consular ID's too?

    They are probably with sub-contractors who just sign off on the paperwork that the workers are legal. Probably no one from the base actually checked their status. But I bet they will in the furture!

    What a complete mess. I bet they dont announce the name of the Company or fine it. George Bush would be very unhappy with them. They might risk breaking their record of 3 Fines issued last year!

    I would love to know how these illegals got on a military base. About a month ago I had to go pick up my father in a hospital on a marine base, and I had a lot of problems getting on the base. I had to show them my drivers license, car registration, proof of insurance, and my father's military ID before they would even allow me on the base. I guess illegals just get waved through.
