Top Officials of Cleaning Service Charged With Immigration Violations

On February 22, 2007, undocumented workers in 18 states were swept up in a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Internal Revenue Service investigation of Rosenbaum-Cunningham International, Inc. (RCI), a cleaning service. RCI co-owners were charged with various fraud, immigration, and tax charges in a 23-count indictment. The estimated 200 janitors were nabbed at 63 locations, including the House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, ESPN Zone, Planet Hollywood, and others.

Such immigration raids are “not a humane or pragmatic way of solving an economic problem, let alone a social problem,” said Angelo A. Paparelli of Paparelli & Partners LLP, adding that he believes in a comprehensive solution rather than a piecemeal approach.
