A former personnel manager arrested after a large immigration raid at a slaughterhouse pleaded guilty to federal immigration charges. The ex-manager, Elizabeth Billmeyer, 48, of Postville, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to harbor undocumented immigrants for profit and one count of knowingly accepting counterfeit resident alien cards. She faces up to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. Ms. Billmeyer was working at the Agriprocessors plant in Postville, once the nation’s largest kosher slaughterhouse, when federal agents arrested 389 people in an immigration raid in May.
