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 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.
About 30 of the illegal workers have returned to their native countries while the rest were allowed to stay in the United States until the case closes.
