A website in North Carolina alleged last week that the brother of disgraced U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder employs illegal aliens at his business.
William Holder, who owns four McDonald's franchises in Wake County, North Carolina, denied that he hires illegal workers, although the Carolina Journal Online alleged that a reporter was party to conversations at which employees admitted they were in the country illegally and did not have permission to work here.
The news comes less than two months after President Obama put into effect an amnesty that will permit “young” illegals to continue to live in the United States.
According to Carolina Journal's Don Carrington,
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s brother, William Holder, apparently employs illegal foreign workers at one or more of the four McDonald’s restaurants he and his wife Deborah purchased last year in Wake County, a Carolina Journal investigation has found.
A CJ reporter made approximately 30 visits in September to observe and talk with workers at the restaurants, at least one of which has been visited by the attorney general. The reporter was present during a conversation at which some employees stated they did not have a Social Security number, a green card, or any other document that would give them the legal authority to work in the United States.
One employee said he was planning to go through the “deferred action” program announced in June by President Obama that would allow young-adult illegal immigrants to receive legal-resident status and work permits. CJ also has a document corroborating that one of the workers does not have a green card or Social Security number.
Carrington reported that the majority of Holder’s employees are Hispanic and mostly speak Spanish. Some did not speak English.
