Remember when teen-targeted clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch had a catalog featuring naked models simulating sex and an article from porn star Jenna Jameson instructing kids how to give oral sex? Well, now, there’s another reason not to shop A&F: the stores employ illegal aliens and just don’t care about checking immigration status.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Detroit said Tuesday it had levied one of its largest fines — $1 million — against clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch for violations of federal immigration law at its Michigan stores.
The New Albany, Ohio-based retailer did not verify the employment eligibility of its workers and lacked documentation, said Khaalid Walls, spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). . . .
“This is probably the largest fine for ICE in Michigan to date,” Walls said. “The message here really is we want employers to know that their employee documentation is just as important to the federal government as their financial records.” . . .
Walls said the government had a tip that there were “severe deficiencies with their documents.”
And since the stores cited were all in Michigan, how many of the illegal aliens it employed were Muslim?
Just askin’. And the answer is probably: plenty.
