Bummer: Massive ICE Raid Captures 680 Illegal Aliens

This is made the Open Borders advocates Very Upset

ICE raids on Mississippi food processing plants result in 680 arrests

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Wednesday that its officers had raided seven food processing plants in Mississippi and detained approximately 680 “removable aliens” in what a federal prosecutor described as “the largest single-state immigration enforcement operation in our nation’s history.”

Nearly 600 ICE agents swarmed the plants in Bay Springs, Carthage, Canton, Morton, Pelahatchie and Sebastapol, surrounding the perimeters to keep workers from fleeing.

“The execution of federal search warrants today was simply about enforcing the rule of law in our state and throughout our great country,” U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst said in a statement. ” I commend these federal agents, our state and local law enforcement partners, and our federal prosecutors for their professionalism and dedication to ensure that those who violate our laws are held accountable.”

Hopefully, everyone involved in running the plants will see civil and even criminal penalties if it can be shown that they did not do their due diligence to make sure the workers were authorized to work. And it should be noted that anyone not illegal was let go.

Shep Smith had a meltdown over the arrests. The Washington Post tries the “won’t someone think of the children” tactic, forgetting that the parents put their kids in this position by being law breakers.

    CNN tweeted:

    “I need my dad…He’s not a criminal.”

    Well, if he’s in the United States illegally, then yes, he is a criminal. If he is here illegally, and was working at a chicken processing plant, he was either being paid cash under the table, or had provided false documents to pay payroll and income taxes. Both of those are felonies.

    Of course, the factory owners and managers need to be arrested, too, if they were in on this fraud. If convicted, they need to be thrown in prison for the maximum sentence allowable under the law; with consecutive sentencing, that could be for the rest of their miserable lives. That’s the kind of deterrent we need.

    Then the government needs to come up with an amnesty program: any manager at any facility who has allowed these kinds of immigration violations to occur should have thirty days to come forward, and tell ICE what has been done, and then he gets off with a felony conviction, a fine but a suspended sentence. After that thirty days is up, that’s it, no more Mr Nice Guy, you get caught aiding and abetting illegal immigration and you go to jail, for the maximum allowable sentence.

      Donald Trump’s businesses have hired many undocumented immigrants. To your knowledge have any trump owners or managers gone to jail? According to the conservative Washington Times only 5 of trump’s 565 companies even use e-verify!

      Isn’t it hypocritical to send ICE into processing plants but not Mar a Lago (which didn’t use e-verify)?

      The undocumented are not technically criminals, as being in the US without documentation is a civil offense at the risk of deportation after due process.

      Is it at all suspicious that Koch Foods (not affiliated with the Koch Bros) settled a $3.75 million EEOC suit because supervisors were sexually harassing female Hispanic workers? Were they teaching those whiny bitches to keep their mouths shut? You can be sure the next 680 undocumented workers who take their place will keep quiet.

      • formwiz says:

        So far we’ve only heard of one.

        Care to document the others?

        And breaking the law makes them criminals.

        I know this doesn’t apply if you can be exploited by the Demos as far as you’re concerned, but it’s a big reason why people are flocking to Trump; and that includes blacks and Hispanics.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          dj trump has lost many civil cases, e.g., trump “university”, making him as much of a criminal as an undocumented immigrant. Right?

          • formwiz says:

            No, because he paid any fines or penalties. He also appeared in court to answer the charges.

            The illegals do neither and that makes them criminals.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            You’re so stupid it’s almost cute.

      • Dana says:

        Yes, the illegal aliens undocumented workers at Mar a Lago need to be rounded up and deported, and the resort adopt strict verification of eligibility standards.

        However, the illegal aliens undocumented most certainly are criminals. They are either working for cash off the books, thus evading income and payroll taxes, or have provided fraudulent documents; both of these are felonies. If it can be proved that the hiring people knew that these documents were fraudulent, they have also committed crimes, and should be prosecuted.

        The notion that because some people have gotten away with crimes in the past does not somehow mean that we should continue to ignore such crimes.

        Is it at all suspicious that Koch Foods (not affiliated with the Koch Bros) settled a $3.75 million EEOC suit because supervisors were sexually harassing female Hispanic workers? Were they teaching those whiny bitches to keep their mouths shut? You can be sure the next 680 undocumented workers who take their place will keep quiet.

        The way around that problem is simple: prosecute all of those supervisors who knew or were involved in keeping the illegal immigrants employed! Offer rewards for the office secretaries who catch their bosses hiring illegals for turning them in. Send the message to every employer out there: if you are involved in this [insert slang term for feces here], you are going to jail! That’ll make them investigate their own houses, and weed out any illegals who are there.

        • Professor Hale says:

          I don’t think that that is much of an incentive. You lose your illegal job and get deported, but you get enough money to never have to work again for the rest of your life. I’d take that deal.

  3. Kye says:

    Only in the warped mind of a leftist could one equate a sexual harassment suit being settled with the arrest of illegal aliens.

    Sorry kid, your father IS a criminal.

    I don’t know, Dana. We keep going for amnesty program after amnesty program always with the promise that “This is the last time” and always with the promise that “We’re gonna tighten up the border” and for some reason that never happens. When are you guys finally gonna get tired of beings crewed in the ass by the leftist? When there are so many illegals here on their payroll we can never again win an election? It is already too late!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      trump inc hires “illegals”.

      • formwiz says:

        Only one.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          He hired hundreds of undocumented Polish workers to demolish a building in 1980. According to court documents he was sued and had to pay over $1 million to the workers.

          A dozen at Bedminster, a dozen at Westchester, 5 at Pine Hill including Mr. Reyes who had worked there 16 years, several workers on the DC trump hotel.

          trump starting purging “illegal” workers after he was elected, suggesting the org had not conducted its due diligence in hiring or employing these men and women.

          • formwiz says:

            He did, huh? I’d love to see the documentation on that.

            Hundreds of guys from a Communist country who would have been in the crossfire between the two superpowers just walked in from Mexico.

            Reagan, Maggie, and the Pope against Brezhnev over whether Poland could have free labor and these guys just waltzed in.

            Oh, yeah, 100% believable. /sarc

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Just Google ‘trump illegal polish workers’ and read ’em and weep.

            You can choose from thousands of links, my friend!

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            We’ll consider your lack of a response to be acquiescence.

    • Dana says:

      You misunderstood me. The amnesty I proposed is actually a thirty day window for employers to self-incriminate and out the illegals, in exchange for a suspended sentence. If they don’t do it in thirty days, then too bad, so sad, if they get caught it’s twenty years in prison.

      This would be a good way to get every employer in the country to take action if he even suspects that there are illegals working for him to take action to get themselves out of the mess.

  4. Bill589 says:

    A good start.
    Keep going. There are millions more, and millions more on the way after that if we keep rewarding illegals.

  5. Professor Hale says:

    Only 680 arrests? Not very “massive”. They could have found more than that in Walmart in an hour.

  6. Kye says:

    By the modern leftist definition both Bill589 and Professor Hale are white supremacists, white nationalists and of course raaaaacists. Ask any of the commies running for president, the news media, Hollywood and our very own Elwood. It took me six months of explaining what a white supremacist is to finally get Elwood to stop calling me one. He couldn’t understand that a white man who is a white supremacist couldn’t and wouldn’t be married to an Asian woman. It don’t work that way.

    Now that the left has ground the word “raaaaacist” into the dirt they are well on their way to making everyone who doesn’t agree with them a white supremacist or nationalist. Soon they’ll call the wrong person the wrong name and the war will heat up.

        You leftists all suffer from a mental disease. I am not nor have I admitted to being a white supremacist. Stop lying about me you ass. There are a million things you can truthfully call me but “white supremacist” is not one of them.

        How stupid are you? A white supremacist CANNOT BE MARRIED TO ANYONE BUT A WHITE PERSON YOU DOPE! And I don’t “claim” to be married to a non-white woman I AM married to a non-white woman, It’s you who “claimed” to be Black and that is a lie. You are about as black as Rachael Dolezal.

        Trump is not a white supremacist he is an American Nationalist as am I. And what does “By all means come and get me” supposed to mean? Hell, I wouldn’t know what to do with the likes of you.

But other commenters call me gay, n*gger, teenager, a child molester, a girl, a communist… but just typical insults flung at a lib on a conBlog. I’m an old white man from the middle of America who’s been very fortunate in life in terms of family, friends and vocation.

    • Professor Hale says:

      Racist, White Nationalist, and White Supremacist all just mean, “you don’t agree with the Democratic party approved talking points on this issue”. The last two came out this year since they just weren’t getting any traction from the “racist” charge any more. Also, look for more accusations of “child molester” since that still works.

      Kye, there is nothing you can do to escape your racial guilt for being white. Just ask Donald Trump. Even an award by Jesse Jackson didn’t save him. As soon as he beat Hillary, he turned into a White Supremacist, even though he has never done or said anything even remotely White Supremacist.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        trump was a white supremacist the moment he started courting white supremacists. The day he announced he called Mexicans rapist and murderers. Who knows what’s in his heart, but his words and actions speak loudly.

      You always must turn every topic into Trump, Trump,Trump. By your rant I imagine you ARE FOR throwing illegals out as long as they worked for a Trump company. All other can stay. So you don’t care about illegals ruining our country you’re concerned if they work for a Trump company. BTW, Trump does not hire groundskeepers, maids, maintenance workers, cooks servers, or dish washers. He hires Upper echelon management. Lower operational management are the people who hire the work staff, and they’re mostly women in the Trump organizations.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        We’re pointing out the hypocrisy of the right. You claim ‘The law is the law’, yet don’t want to criticize the trump org for hiring undocumented immigrants.

        Another commenter advocated prosecuting corporate officers and managers for hiring undocumented immigrants. It’s good that corporate law protects corporate officers but not workers, right?

        Undocumented immigrants are not ruining our country; they add value.

      So is an undocumented immigrant who goes to court no longer a criminal?

      Do you think that being present without documentation is a worse “crime” than defrauding students out of millions of dollars?

      • Dana says:

        Jeffrey Jeffery wrote:

        So is an undocumented immigrant who goes to court no longer a criminal?

        Depends: if he is convicted, then yes, he is. And we should insure that all of the illegal immigrants “undocumented immigrants” are convicted and have criminal records. This way, if they re-enter, they can be charged with a more serious crime.

        The only thing to do is lock them up for as long as the law allows before deporting them. Make sure that re-entry and getting caught again will result in severe punishment, not slaps on the wrist.

            “People will risk jail to come here to give thrif kids a better life”

            Not the illegal aliens crossing our border illegally. They are risking jail to come here to have US pay to give their kids a better life. If THEY wanted to all they need do is what our parents and ancestors did….create a nation worth staying in. Send them back!

          • Dana says:

            That depends on what the risks actually are. When the risks of getting caught in the first place are negligible — and with a guesstimated 11.3 million illegals here, those risks apparently are negligible — and the risks of going to jail for it are similarly small, yeah, might as well risk it.

            What we need to do is make those risks non-negligible, make the odds of getting caught and seriously punished substantial enough that it’s not a good choice. The parents who want to give their children a better life will think thrice about it if getting caught means jail, and separation from their children, their children sent to foster care back in Mexico.

            One thing is certain: nice guys cannot fight illegal immigration! You have to be an [insert slang term for the rectum here] to snatch a parent away from his child and throw him in jail, and we need a lot more [insert plural slang term for the rectum here]!

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Dana Pico typed: Depends: if he is convicted, then yes, he is.

          Since these are civil proceedings, are they really convicted? trump has lost several civil cases, having to pay multiple millions in settlements (trump U, Polish illegals etc). Does this make him a convicted criminal?

      • Kye says:

        So now we’re going to rate the “better crime” against “the worse crime”? Or is it only if Trump is somehow involved? So in you pea brain we should forgive all illegal aliens of there crimes because Trump? You’re an idiot.

  10. Dana says:

    I do have to wonder, though. Jeffrey Jeffery, through all of his many screen names, has told us that he is a business owner. Has he, as the owner, gone to his human resources department and said, “Make very certain that everyone who is working here is fully and legitimately documented as far as their eligibility for employment in the United States”? Have you gone to your outside vendors, if you have any, to receive assurances that all of their employees are legal?

    These are things you can do. The question is: do you want to?

  11. John says:

    Bummer
    Then they let 1/2 go

    I would rather see them still working

  12. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    TEACH typed: “Massive ICE Raid Captures 680 Illegal Aliens”

    As it turns out nearly half were released right away. So what ICE agents “captured” were “illegal”-looking US residents, some who will likely turn out to be undocumented immigrants. Thankfully, some church groups are taking care of the children (many likely US citizens) left behind by the operation.

    One frequent commenter suggested that undocumented workers be lined up and shot. If you really want a deterrent, make them dig their own mass grave, line them up and shoot them so they fall into their own grave, and make sure it is broadcast on TV throughout the US, Mexico and Central America!

    Anti-immigrant zealots with a shred of conscience left must view these men and women and their children as non-human (animals, rapists, murderers, illegals) to justify their cruelty toward their fellow humans. You mock children crying for their parents.

    Again, it’s ok to bilk others out of millions of dollars, but a capital offense to sneak in to the US to work at a chicken processing plant in order to support your family.

    Hate and cruelty IS the objective.

  13. Doom and Gloom says:

    To begin with, the agencies charged with border security would receive new technology, new facilities, and more people to stop, process, and deport illegal immigrants. But while security might start at our borders, it doesn’t end there. Millions of undocumented immigrants live and work here without our knowing their identity or their background. We need to strike a workable bargain with them. They have to acknowledge that breaking our immigration laws was wrong. They must pay a penalty, and abide by all of our laws going forward. They must earn the right to stay over a 6-year period, and then they must wait another 5 years as legal permanent residents before they become citizens…..BARAK OBAMA on the senate floor in 2007.

    Another OBAMA SPEECH:

    BARACK OBAMA’S 2007 BORDER PROTECTION PAPER
    One of the purposes of the United States’ border policy is to protect the citizens of
    this great country from non-citizens who intend to harm or acts of violence against those within its borders. The main goal of this policy is to know, at all times, who is inside the massive national borders that stretch all the way from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, covering thousands of miles of land. About one million immigrants arrive in the United States legally every year. Yet every year there are also an estimated 800,000 people who enter this country illegally, or illegally overstay their visa (“Immigration and the Border” par. 4). This means that nearly one out of every two immigrants that are in the United States is here illegally. There is basically no record of where they are and what they doing here. This could potentially have a tremendously negative effect on what the United States is so proudly known for: a strong economy, a safe home for its citizens, fair and equal employment, and a free people. With so many illegal aliens within our borders, it is unclear how safe the American people really are since it is unclear what these alien’s intentions are in the United States. The United States currently has a very poor immigration policy that is in desperate need of a change. Particularly, The United States needs to reform its border protection policy under the plan of presidential candidate Barck Obama in order to create safer borders for its citizens.

    President Clinton began his speech by saying, “There are some areas that the federal government should not leave and should address and address strongly. One of these areas is the problem of illegal immigration.”

    He then proceeded to go right into the details: “After years of neglect,” he said, “this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders.”

    Another portion of Clinton’s 1996 Trump-ish SOTU address concerned hiring undocumented migrants:

    “We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants,” Clinton said. “And tonight, I announce I will sign an executive order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.”

    FROM BILL CLINTONS 1996 CAMPAIGN WEBSITE:

    Deploying more Border Patrol agents than any previous Administration. The Administration has increased the number of Border Patrol agents at the southwest border by 40% since 1993. The Clinton Administration is deploying an additional 1,000 agents and over 550 inspectors at the southwest border. We are also strengthening anti-smuggling efforts to reduce the criminal transport and exploitation of illegal aliens.
    *”
    Strengthening enforcement of sanctions against employers that hire illegal immigrants. President Clinton also issued an Executive Order to keep federal contracts from going to businesses that knowingly hire illegal workers.
    *”
    Removing a record 51,600 criminal and other illegal aliens from this country in 1995 alone.

    The left is using illegals as a political football. Trump took a page from their playbook and ran with it and since orange man bad they left then pivoted to embrace illegals. Sad. Really since trump wanted to give the entire nation what they wanted at the time. Constraint Illegals.

He is a CORPORATIST. and nothing could verify that more than all the stimulus money he gave to corporate bed fellows not to mention the bail out of TOO BIG TO FAIL BANKS.

    Obama is despised by the far left and in fact the last debate they were trashing him and his policies left and right only to then go oh well you know he is Okay. No hes not. Not to the far left. He was a drone striking monster who kept us in wars the progressive left hated.
