 ANAHEIM, Calif., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement is being issued by Disneyland Publicity:
 Disneyland has not been fined by the INS. It is highly misleading to report otherwise. We have received a notice of intent to fine from the INS and we intend to respond. Disneyland has a meeting scheduled to discuss the INS notice with INS staff today (May 6) and we are surprised that the INS has chosen to publicly discuss this matter in advance of that meeting.
 Out of nearly 7,000 employees reviewed in the audit, the INS identified only five who the INS asserted had been improperly employed. Those five individuals were dismissed as soon as the improprieties were discovered, and the current allegations have nothing to do with these individuals. According to the law, an employer cannot refuse to honor documents which on their face appear to be genuine.
 There was no intentional hiring of illegals.
 On April 22, Disneyland received a preliminary notice from the INS staff regarding the possibility of technical violations relating to its record-keeping of hiring procedures. Disneyland has been given until May 22 to respond to this notice, and will do so.
 The bulk of the alleged violations relate to our inability to produce thousands of requested documents within a 72-hour period. All the requested documents were produced as promptly as possible. The remainder of the alleged violations relate to technical errors and oversights in document preparations.
 Disneyland employs between 7,000 and 12,000 people, depending upon the time of year, and we are proud of our hiring record. We are confident that these allegations will be resolved satisfactorily.
