Immigration Bust - 680 Illegals Arrested at Koch Owned Food Plant

August 8, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - First the front story which in itself is breathtaking given the current political climate...

On August 7, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) executed multiple federal criminal search warrants at seven agricultural processing plants across Mississippi Wednesday morning as part of an ongoing HSI worksite enforcement criminal investigation.

In addition to executing federal search warrants and seizing business records pertaining to the ongoing federal criminal investigation, deportation officers with ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in partnership with HSI detained approximately 680 removable aliens who were unlawfully working at the plants.

All the unlawfully present foreign nationals arrested Wednesday are being interviewed by ICE staff to record any potential mitigating humanitarian situations. Based on these interviews, and consideration of their criminality and prior immigration history, ICE is determining on a case-by-case basis based on the totality of the circumstances which individuals will be detained and which persons may be released from custody at present. In all cases, all the illegal aliens encountered as part of this operation are either being placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts, and for those who already received due process and have been ordered removed, processed for removal from the U.S.

Now the backstory, which is HUGE...

As USA Today reported, clarifying the matter, “Workers filled three buses two for men and one for women - at a Koch Foods Inc. plant in tiny Morton, 40 miles east of Jackson. They were taken to a military hangar to be processed for immigration violations...”

So the Kochs have finally been outed as serial immigration law violators, the reason why previous administrations, especially Republican ones, have refused to take such bold action. It also explains the Koch Brothers animosity to President Trump because of his stand against illegal immigration.
