Ypsilanti couple accused of harboring immigrants

The government says a Washtenaw County couple converted their basement into bedrooms for illegal immigrants who worked in their restaurant.

Trial opened Tuesday in federal court in Detroit for Guan Chen and his former wife, Hoa (Hoy) Le Chen. They're charged with harboring illegal immigrants in Ypsilanti by providing work, transportation and a place to live in late 2006 and early 2007.

The Chens have pleaded not guilty.
