BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN/WLWT) – Butler County’s Sheriff says he’s cracking down on illegal immigrants and the businesses who employ them.
Sheriff Richard Jones posted a series of tweets saying deputies will be watching and coming after business owners who hire illegal immigrants.
“If you’re an employer and you’re doing this, here’s what I’m telling you: shame on you,” said Jones.
He’s also asking residents to report possible illegal activity of businesses.
Jones says he’s even assigning a detective to investigate any new leads that come in.
“If you violate the law and you cheat on taxes and you are knowingly doing this with people that are here illegally, and you knowingly do it and you encourage it, you have violated the law,” he said.
Jones added that tips are already coming in.
