JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi's attorney general says a dozen workers for a Flora construction company are accused of identity fraud and violating the Mississippi Employment Protection Act.

Attorney General Jim Hood says all 12 are undocumented immigrants, and have been charged with one count each of the two crimes. He says all worked for Bonds and Associates, and were arrested at job sites in Jackson.

Hood, in a news release Thursday, said that once the state charges are resolved, they'll be turned over to federal immigration officials.
