The FBI has arrested Global Horizons Manpower Inc. CEO Mordechai Orian, 45, in a huge human-trafficking case. Orian is also a large GOP donor and a critic of illegal immigration.
The FBI made a prior effort to arrest Orian, but he finally surrendered to federal authorities in Honolulu. Also arrested were three employees and two Thailand-based recruiters. An Israeli national who was based in Los Angeles, Orian was previously ordered deported from the United States but remained in the country during his appeal. He now could stay in the country for some time — he faces 70 years imprisonment.
Authorities suggest that he tried to use “tricks” to evade them before he turned himself in and warned the court that he is a flight risk given his past practice of using outdated or incorrect passports and visas.
He is reportedly accused of using recruiters to lure workers with false promises to the country, taking their passports, and threatening to deport them if they did not comply with demands.”
Here is his contribution list.
Global Horizons bills itself as “your reliable labor contractor.”
