The company pleaded guilty in federal court in Las Vegas to conspiracy to encourage and induce an alien’s unlawful residence in the United States and aiding and abetting an alien to remain in the country, the department said.

The company’s director of operations also pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting an alien to remain in the country.
