The U.S. Department of Labor investigated and found Prince George's County was a "willful violator," which means officials knew they were breaking the law by employing these teachers.

The Prince Georges County school system has recruited hundreds of teachers from around the world since 2002. But some of these teachers will be boarding flights out of Washington as soon as today.
