Why is it so hard to get a job at washington DC SEO?
A woman is among more than 100 women arrested for allegedly participating in the illegal immigrant labor racket.
A federal grand jury indicted the women on Tuesday for allegedly committing the crime of trafficking in persons.
They are expected to appear in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.
The women face charges that carry sentences of up to 15 years in prison.
The Justice Department said they are expected answer questions at their arraignment.
The indictment is the first criminal prosecution for the crimes of “human trafficking.”
The indictments were made public by prosecutors in the Northern District of California.
The arrests came after the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Field Operations investigated and shut down the trafficking ring.
The investigation started after the agency received information that illegal immigrants were using DCSEO’s human resources department to take part in the work of the organization.
It is unclear what those immigrants were doing at the time.
Officials say the workers are being paid less than $15 an hour.
A spokesman for the agency declined to comment on the indictment.
The federal government also shut down DCSEA, the department responsible for human resource and labor affairs.
