I work for Packaging Concepts LTD 25 Wellington Road in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Last evening (December 14, 2007) on our second shift a young man was nearly cut in half by a CNC machine he is currently in the hospital in critical unsatisfactory condition.
After taking this man to the hospital it was found out that he was an illegal alien and totally inexperienced when it came to running this machine.
My heart and prayers are with this man.
This, however, is an incident that could have been avoided if the company had taken steps to insure he was a legal immigrant.
I fear that the fact he was illegal will get buried under the rug and the company will go unscathed from wrong doing.
I am writing this letter in hopes that the immigration department will investigate this incident to keep the same sort of thing from happening again by brining the company into complying with immigration checking.
The prognosis for this young man is not good and there is a good possibility he will die.
I am writing to you to urge you to investigate this matter so that the same horrible incident will not happen again
