Two groups opposed to Republican governor candidate Jim Oberweis' ardent stance against illegal immigration said Tuesday they helped two illegal immigrants file a state labor complaint alleging the dairy owner hired a cleaning firm that paid sub-minimum wages.
Oberweis initially called the complaint part of a "smear campaign" against his candidacy for governor, but he later backed away from that description and said he hoped to meet with immigrant advocates to hear their concerns. He also said his Oberweis Dairy would investigate the matter but would never knowingly employ illegal immigrants.
