PHOENIX (AP) - A June 2 sentencing date has been set for two lower-level managers for a Phoenix car-wash chain that's accused of immigration fraud in its hiring practices.
Guadalupe Carlos Vazquez-Escorcia and Juan Zarate-Carreon have each pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge as part of the case against Danny's Family Car Wash.
Some lower-level managers who pleaded guilty have said that at least one higher-up within Danny's instructed them to rehire workers who had to be fired after a federal audit found nearly half of the company's 1,900-person workforce were people who weren't authorized to work in the United States.
Twelve of 14 Danny's managers who were charged have pleaded guilty.
The two remaining managers have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.
