MASSILLON, Ohio - The nearly 150 workers arrested during ICE raids this week in Massillon, Salem and Canton will likely end up in Cleveland's immigration court, but experts say the people who hired them in the first place might not be part of the legal system.
Years before this week's raid, Cindy Kovick was fired from her Human Resources job at Fresh Mark.
"I knew these people were not legal," said Kovick, referring to the new hires she was forced to sign off on without the proper documentation.
She told News 5 she had enough and raised red flags about their hiring practices.
Fresh Mark says since Kovick worked there, they started using E-Verify, the government system that helps employers make sure their new hires are working legally in the United States.
