Illegal aliens from South Korea were arrested this week at the SK Innovation construction site in Jackson County, Georgia, by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents after probes by state and federal officials.
ICE agents arrested 13 illegal aliens from South Korea working at the SK Innovation construction site where a battery plant is being built, the agency told local media.
Months ago, in May, federal immigration officials arrested 33 illegal aliens from South Korea who had been working at the SK Innovation site.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), along with others, asked ICE to investigate SK Innovations for their alleged illegal hiring of foreign nationals.
According to SK Innovations, the illegal aliens were hired by a construction company helping to build the plant which received huge tax breaks and subsidies by Georgia taxpayers.
