    Over 100 Missouri poultry plant workers arrested as illegal

    Over 100 Missouri poultry plant workers arrested as illegal aliens


    Associated Press - May 22, 2007 4:44 PM ET

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Federal immigration agents arrested more than 100 workers as suspected illegal immigrants in a raid on a southwest Missouri poultry plant Tuesday.

    US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it served a federal criminal search warrant at the George's processing plant in Butterfield in Barry County, about 60 miles southwest of Springfield.

    Pete Baird of the US immigration office for Missouri and Kansas said the number of people detained made it a large operation for the region.

    Most of those arrested were from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

    Those arrested will be taken to detention facilities in Wichita, Kansas; Kansas City and St. Louis.

    If they would just come a few more miles south to Tyson foods they could add considerably to that figure.

    Hi Vic, I agree I've been saying for months why have they not targeted Tyson Foods, Cargill, Pilgrims Pride, Excel. They are some of the largest companies who I know for sure are employing illegals. They would hit a deportation jackpot!
    But like I've said before it seems that they target 20, 30, 50, 100, to try to make it look like they are making progress.Dont get me wrong glad they are doing a little but at that rate for every 100 they deport another 500or more come over the border every night!
    My question is why the small fry go after the many hundreds that are working in these companies and fine the employers for not verifying documentation!

    Employers are not required to "verify" SSNs. The states they must accept the identification papers given to them, unless they are clearly fraudulent.Consequently, employers can state, "I didn't know thwy were illegal" and escape any penalty.

    The employers don't want to know. They want cheap dependable workers. American aren't considered cheap or dependable. We take sick days oe switch to an easier job for more money.
