I.C.E. agents arrest 300 at S. Carolina poultry plant

Well at least one agency in the Federal Government is attempting to do it's job....

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided the House of Raeford’s Columbia Farms poultry processing plant Oct. 7 as part of a 10-month investigation into the company’s employment practices. According to the agency, officials arrested approximately 300 illegal aliens. Earlier I.C.E. actions resulted in criminal charges against 11 supervisors and one human resources manager.

"The execution of this search warrant today marks an important phase of this ongoing investigation into the hiring practices of this employer," said W. Walter Wilkins, U.S. attorney for the district of South Carolina. "Aggressive enforcement and investigative actions are vital to the integrity of our immigration system."
Suspects will be interviewed, fingerprinted and photographed by I.C.E. agents and processed for deportation from the United States.
