Hispanic machine operator loses hand, alleges illegal employment practices

"A 17-year-old illegal immigrant recently filed a $2 million suit against a Maryville pallet company after her hand was cut off while she was working there."

"The teen's suit alleges that when she tried to get help from the company for her medical bills, she was told to 'go back to Mexico.'"

"The suit also alleged that when the company learned the defendant and other workers were illegal aliens, they continued to withhold payroll taxes, but didn't forward those taxes to the government."
