    ICE raids sweep through multiple locations in Mississippi

    ICE raids sweep through multiple locations in Mississippi

    JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - ICE raids took place in multiple locations throughout Mississippi Wednesday morning.

    One of these locations was a Peco chicken plant on Fulton Road in Canton.

    It is not known if any individuals were taken into custody during this raid.

    “I can’t divulge locations, but I can tell you that we’re doing several simultaneous sites throughout Mississippi,” said Spokesperson Lindsay Williams with Homeland Security.

    A press conference will be held at 2 p.m. at the Homeland Security Investigations office in Pearl regarding the ICE raids this morning.

    Immigration agents raid Mississippi food processing facilities

    BY RAFAEL BERNAL - 08/07/19 01:25 PM EDT 259


    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents raided several Mississippi poultry processing facilities Wednesday to execute federal criminal and administrative warrants.

    An ICE spokesman confirmed the raids, saying it was part of a coordinated operation with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Mississippi.


    Detained employees at a Koch Foods plant in Morton, Miss., 40 miles east of Jackson, were boarded on three buses and taken to the Mississippi National Guard base in Flowood, Miss., for processing, according to The Associated Press.


    It said agents searched the plant, asking employees for identification. Those who could not prove their legal residence were detained, while those with papers had their lockers searched and were released.

    Poultry processing relies heavily on immigrant labor to clean, cut and package chicken parts for consumption.

    Activists and labor unions have long accused the poultry industry of abusing undocumented workers who can't appeal to the federal government for protection.

    Koch Foods, the Illinois-based company that operates some of the raided plants, did not immediately return a request for comment. Koch Foods is not connected to billionaire mega-donor Charles Koch.

    The Mississippi raids follow a large-scale raid last year in Ohio, where a large landscaping company was investigated by ICE.

    President Trump vowed in June to deport "millions" of undocumented immigrants from the interior of the country, as immigration detention centers exceeded their capacity, packed with asylum-seeking detainees from the U.S.-Mexico border.

    The Trump administration has threatened generalized, large-scale workplace raids, but has mostly focused its interior deportation assets on undocumented immigrants with pending orders of deportation.

    It is unclear what criminal activity prompted the federal criminal warrant and the participation of the U.S. Attorney's Office; immigration violations are for the most part civil law violations and not subject to criminal warrants.


    “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents are executing federal search warrants today at multiple locations across the state of Mississippi as part of a coordinated operation with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Mississippi pursuant to ongoing HSI criminal and administrative investigations," ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said in an email.


    ICE Acting Director Matt Albence is scheduled to give a press conference at the HSI office in Pearl, Miss., later Wednesday.
