Feds: Hotel owners replaced legal workers with immigrants

KSAL StaffMarch 8, 2015

A suburban Kansas City hotel owner who illegally hired immigrants to cut labor costs soon will learn his punishment in a case that highlights a shift by the government in its handling of immigration-related cases.

The government is seeking a 27-month sentence for Munir Ahmad Chaudary (Mu-neer Ahmad Shod-ree) at a hearing Monday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas. He and his wife pleaded guilty to conspiracy to encourage immigrants to reside unlawfully in the United States.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says the case should “serve as an alarm” to anybody doing it that there are consequences.

Chaudary’s wife, Rhonda R. Bridge, was sentenced last month to 21 months in prison. The government seized their hotels and their bank accounts.
