US (OH): Corso's hires PR firm in wake of arrests

Corso’s Home and Garden Center hired a public relations firm in the wake of last week’s raids that led to the arrest of more than 100 of its employees.

Corso’s chose Dix & Eaton to provide communications support during the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigation, account executive Angela Martin said. The firm has specialized expertise in media relations and crisis communications.

Last Tuesday, agents with Homeland Security ICE and the federal Border Patrol raided Corso’s locations in Sandusky and Castalia arresting 114 workers who are accused of being undocumented aliens.
