Federal prosecutors have charged a Wichita firm where a supervisor allegedly knew an illegal immigrant used a fake resident alien card to get a job.
A criminal information filed Wednesday in federal court charges McCalla Corp. with aiding and abetting the use of a false document. Prosecutors say the supervisor had reason to know the immigration document was false.
Roy McCalla, the firm's president, says in a statement released through his attorney that the firm takes full responsibility for what he says was an isolated incident. He says the charge is based on the actions of one employee, who no longer works for the company. McCalla says the incident does not reflect the company's policies.
An initial court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 14.
