Authorities say a dozen workers at a warehouse at Stewart International Airport have been charged with using forged immigration documents to get jobs.
State police say the employees of Empire Warehouse Solutions have been charged with falsifying business records and offering a false instrument for filing.
They say the 12 workers from Mexico, Peru, Chile and El Salvador used forged Social Security and resident alien cards to get hired.
The workers had access to airport operations areas, but police say they didn't pose a threat to air travelers and weren't part of any larger criminal operation.
All are being held Thursday in the Orange County Jail on no bail and are expected to be deported.
