Our favorite fascist government agency is at it again, rounding up hundreds of food processing workers at Mississippi poultry plants today - one of the largest immigration raids in at least the last 10 years.
I'm sure that patriotic, economically anxious Real Americans will line up to take these jobs any day now...Federal immigration officials raided several food-processing plants in Mississippi Wednesday and arrested approximately 680 people believed to be working without authorization.
The coordinated raids were conducted by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations "at seven agricultural processing plants across Mississippi," according to an ICE statement. In addition to the arrests, agents also seized company business records.
More than 600 ICE agents were involved in the raids, surrounding the perimeters of the targeted plants to prevent workers, mainly Latino immigrants, from escaping. The actions were centered on plants near Jackson owned by five companies, according to the Associated Press.
