A company that owns 11 McDonald's restaurants in Nevada was fined one million dollars Wednesday after pleading guilty to employing 58 illegal immigrants.

The company, Mack Associates Inc., knew the employees were illegal immigrants and had offered them names and social security numbers belonging to other people, the US Justice Department said.

Wow, they offered them social security numbers and ids of other people? I didn't know it went that deep to employ illegal immigrants. A million bucks as a fine? That is paltry. So if they are offering names and social security numbers from other people, doesn't that mean they are stealing them?

as far as i understand it, they are SS ID's of dead people

but i could be wrong.

Remember all those occasions were UPS lost personal information for big bank customers?

Maybe McDonald's was in on the conspiracy

exact point why ALL illegal immigrant's..needed to be shipped out years ago.

yes they want freedom...i understand.

but at same time they take American's job's...yes the company's allow it which makes it a uphill battle.

make the company's cry because they are forced to hire Americans at a legal wage rate!!!!!

One million dollars? Are you kidding me?

Whoop de do...

McDonalds is a franchise which means that the people who run the particular restaurants run the restaurants...not the McDonalds brand name.
The news is in the franchise owners...not the brand name.

And one million dollars is nothing compared to the amount of money made annually...

They should sue Mcdonalds for causing many Americans to become overweight and obese. This is the wrong reason they should be suing for.

Even if they got the franchise owners it does nothing to corporate McD's bottom line. However, I am glad someone is taking some initiative about this.

I have no problem with people coming to this country in order to better their lives. Do it legally, if you are here illegally your committing a crime and therefore are a criminal and need to be deported.

Its good that they got this one franchise, now how about taking a nice thorough sweep through the construction industry so that some American citizens can get some jobs eh? When unemployment is 5.5% that's more than 16,500,000 Americans out of work. That's also 16,500,000 Americans standing in my way of getting a job. This number theoretically can be cut in half if illegal immigrants were deported.
