Man Sentenced For Transporting Illegal Immigrants

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minnesota man has been sentenced to three years probation for transporting illegal immigrants.

Juan Arrazolo of St. Peter also was sentenced in federal court Thursday to six months of home confinement and fined $2,000.

In his plea agreement, Arrazolo admitted that between October 2006 and October 2011, he transported two illegal immigrants from Texas to Minnesota to work in his business.

Prosecutors said Arrazolo’s company, Poultry Service Management, provided workers for large corporate poultry farms in Minnesota and the surrounding area.

Arrazolo admitted that one of the individuals he transported was a citizen of Mexico, and that he knew the individual was not a U.S. citizen when he transported him from Texas to Minnesota.
