Christina Gamez, a bookkeeper for Los Villatoros Harvesting (LVH), in April 2022 pleaded guilty to racketeering in 2016-17 by taking H-2A workers’ passports and requiring them to work for below-AEWR wages. LVH was founded by Bladimir Moreno in 2010 and recruited Mexican H-2A workers to work in Florida and other states before being dissolved in 2019.
Gamez knew that LVH charged H-2A workers in Mexico for US jobs, and used knowledge of these recruitment debts to encourage them to work for below-promised wages in the US.
