    OR: Del Monte Responds to Immigration Visit at Portland

    Fresh Del Monte Produce Responds to Immigration Visit at Portland Facility

    Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc. (NYSE:FDP) takes its obligation to comply with U.S. immigration law very seriously.

    In response to reports that have appeared in various electronic and print media, Fresh Del Monte confirms that on Tuesday, June 12th, 2007, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE") personnel visited Fresh Del Monte's Portland, Oregon facility. Fresh Del Monte has been advised that it is not a current target of the investigation.

    Fresh Del Monte has, and will, continue to cooperate with ICE in its investigation. Fresh Del Monte retained American Staffing Resources to provide a contingent labor force at the Portland facility. Fresh Del Monte does not employ this labor force. Fresh Del Monte is committed to complying with all laws and regulations.

    Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc. is one of the world's leading vertically integrated producers, marketers and distributors of high-quality fresh and fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, as well as a leading producer and distributor of prepared food in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Fresh Del Monte markets its products worldwide under the Del Monte(R) brand, a symbol of product innovation, quality, freshness and reliability for over 100 years. - ... d-facility

    Yeap, they'll get out of hiring illegals every time since they use staffing services.

    Del Monte will never convince me they didn't know their workers were illegal even though they didn't hire them. They're not that stupid.

    Sorry folks, been away with real life duties to attend to. Hopefully, I'll be back on the boards more over the next few days...

    Anyway, since this involves my hometown (well, closeby) here's some updates on the ICE raid @ Del Monte in North Portland:

    American_Elizabeth or jecg may have already posted this (I haven't seen it) but just in case...

    OFIR (Oregonians for Immigration Reform) is coordinating a rally at City Hall next Wednesday @ 9:30am - I've cut/pasted in the details in the email they sent out yesterday:


    OFIR Members and supporters:

    When: 9:30 am-Wednesday June 20th

    Where: Portland City Hall-1221 SW 4th Ave. (Jefferson & 4th Ave).

    Why: Mayor supports Illegal Del Monte workers & Day Labor Center via Taxpayers
    What: City Council will have their meeting starting @ 9:30am

    Mayor Tom Potter of Portland has criticized the I.C.E. Raids on Del Monte foods. In doing so is supporting Identity Theft/Fraud, a Class "C" Felony, as well as encouraging more Illegal aliens to come to Oregon. He has been quoted as saying, "to go after local workers who are here to support their families while filling the demands of local businesses for their labor is bad policy" (Oregonian-6/13/07)

    In an AP report, Maximimillian Trimm, a special agent with Immigration and Customs Enforcement said, that only 48 of nearly 600 employees at the Fresh Del Monte Produce fruit and vegetable processing plant had valid Social Security numbers." Federal prosecutors said that 20 of the Social Security numbers being misused belonged to people older than 60, and that 29 belonged to dead people." -William McCall, Associated Press Writer.

    The Mayor is Paid & Elected to represent U.S. Citizens, Not Foreign Nationals who are repeat FELONS, i.e. signing I-9 for Employment=Perjury, Social Security Fraud=Felony, 2nd Illegal Entry into U.S.=Felony, etc.

    Mayor & City Council also want Taxpayers to pay $200,000.00 for a DAY LABOR CENTER!?
    State & Private Businesses already have Employment centers. What about...Workers Compensation laws? Liability Laws? Tax Laws? Identity Laws? IMMIGRATION Laws?

    BRING A SIGN/ WATER/ CAMERA/ FRIEND. Remember, we will not block any sidewalk or entrance.
