ATLANTA (AP) - Federal authorities said Wednesday they arrested six illegal immigrants who had security badges that gave them access to the tarmac and other restricted areas at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested the men, all Mexicans employed by T.C. Drywall Inc., as they reported to work at the airport Wednesday, agency spokesman Marc Raimondi said.
Immigration officials said the men had been hired recently to install drywall inside the airport's secure area. They will appear before an immigration judge and face deportation to Mexico.
