557

Two Taiwanese nationals employed at Asia Therapeutic Massage were discovered to be working illegally.

Yu-Jou Wu and Yen Hsin Liu both came to Guam as tourists from Taiwan under the visa waiver program.

But that was just a guise, according to two complaints filed in the District Court of Guam.

Liu arrived on Guam on Jan. 14 while Wu arrived on Feb. 4.

Both women were employed as masseuses by Chien Yin Ko Rollen who did so knowingly, court documents stated.

The complaints note that Rollen paid them for these services but he has not been charged with any offense.

When the women were interviewed by Homeland Security Special Agent Blu Shiroma they admitted to coming to Guam for the purpose of employment which is a violation of U.S. immigration status

Both women were taken into custody and charged with visa fraud perjury.
