Nearly 600 detained in Mississippi immigration raid

LAUREL, Miss. (AP) — The largest single-workplace immigration raid in U.S. history has caused panic among Hispanic families in this small southern Mississippi town, where federal agents rounded up nearly 600 plant workers suspected of being in the country illegally.

One worker caught in Monday’s sweep at the Howard Industries transformer plant said fellow workers applauded as immigrants were taken into custody. Federal officials said a tip from a union member prompted them to start investigating several years ago.

Subjects = Illegal Immigration, largest workplace immigration raid in U.S. history, Laurel, Mississippi, Howard Industries, Fabiola Pena, electronic monitoring bracelets, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Office of Refugee Resettlement, John Foxworth, false Social Security numbers, false residency identification, Roberto Velez, Iglesia Cristiana Peniel, Brazil, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Barbara Gonzalez, Elizabeth Alegria, Agriprocessors, Swift meatpacking plants, enforcement needed.  More from ALIPAC

Another great job by ICE.  The media is filled with heart-string tugging stories of these “poor people” who were arrested.  Don’t care.  Go home.  I am all for LEGAL immigration.  I want ALL illegals deported and sent home with no hope of coming back.  We need our border sealed NOW.  Those who come here illegally don’t respect this country nor our laws.  They take our jobs, drain our government gimmie programs.  There is nothing to say potential terrorists aren’t coming across Juan coming to pick lettuce.

Seal our borders – NOW!  Keep up the good job, ICE!
