Guam – Four Taiwanese women who were arrested for illegally posing as tourists have been released from federal custody.
Yu-shin Chang, Chiao-en wang, I-Ying Lin and I-jung Kwo allegedly came to the island in June in the guise of tourists using Guam’s Visa Waiver Program. However, the women never intended to just visit, and all gained illegal employment at a Tamuning nightclub shortly after arriving.
According to court documents, the four Taiwanese nationals were employed as club hostesses at Wild Orchid Lounge in Tamuning, an establishment owned by Peter Wang. They were discovered when they sold alcoholic beverages at $20 a drink to federal agents disguised as bar patrons.
The women were released from federal custody yesterday and issued an order to stay away from their boss. However, they appear to be residing at an apartment leased by Wang.
Each of the four is being charged with visa fraud perjury. Their next hearing is set for September 5.
