SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The leader of an immigration scheme involving undocumented workers in O’Neill, Nebraska, will be spending the next 10 years in prison.
Juan Pablo Sanchez-Delgado was handed that maximum sentence in U.S. District court.
He was arrested in August of last year, after a raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) when 130 immigrant workers were detained following the raid.
According to court documents, Sanchez-Delgado provided those illegal workers with social security numbers and rides to job sites.
In return, he charged them a fee and took a portion of their paychecks.
Sanchez-Delgado and his wife conducted more than $9 million in financial transactions with money from this scheme.
