    Labor officials blast tactic used in arrests at air base - AP, Myrtle Beach Sun News, SC
    Allen McNeely, head of the state Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health division, said the workers were lured into the arrest by a flier announcing a mandatory Occupational Safety and Health Administration meeting.

    McNeely said one of the contractors who employed the immigrants faxed him a copy of the flier, which told all contract workers to attend an OSHA briefing at the base theater and promised free coffee and doughnuts.

    "Federal immigration officials say they have the right to round up illegal immigrants in any manner they see fit -- even if it means impersonating Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials."
