Two of the nine suspected illegal immigrants detained Monday when they arrived for work at Hotel Bethlehem had criminal records, District Attorney John Morganelli said Tuesday.Well, isn't that just great. Extending lines of credit to people who aren't supposed to work or even be here. Sounds suspiciously like aiding and abetting to me.
