LOS ANGELES (Reuters)- A McDonald's Corp. franchisee pleaded guilty on Wednesday to furnishing illegal immigrants with false identities and will pay $1 million in fines in one of the federal government's first major crackdowns on illegal labor in the fast-food industry.
As efforts to overhaul U.S. immigration law have stalled in Congress, the federal government has stepped up workplace enforcement and has carried out the biggest raids on meat and poultry processing plants in the Midwest.
Working on a tip, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided Mack Associates' 11 McDonald's restaurants in the Reno, Nevada, area last September and arrested 58 illegal immigrants, the Department of Justice said in a statement.
In federal court in Las Vegas on Wednesday, the company pleaded guilty to two felony offenses -- aiding and abetting an alien to remain in the United States and encouraging and inducing an alien's unlawful residence. Two top executives, one former and one current, also pleaded guilty in the case.
Executives from the company were not immediately available for comment.

I am not fond of their sauce, but their BBQ ribs, and rib tips are worth dying for. I order mine with NO SAUCE.. don't really need it, cause the bbq is sooooo good. If I do add sauce, it is of my own choosing. Great hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, actually like their bbq sauce on the chicken, I order it that way.
Brisket is great... when they have turkey legs... oh, MAN, they are good.
GOOD milk shakes...
they are a Cape Girardeau treasure.
