I tell you NOBODY is illegal to stay wherever they want to stay.
I have to tell you that those meat processing factories have really hard time to find people to work in their plants. They even recruit from the poorest countries in Africa such as Somalia.
I know it because my eldest son worked in Pilgrim chicken plant in Russellville, Alabama with those Somalian people for ONLY 1 month. Of course, he did NOT like to work in the really nasty environment, so he quit.
So after they arrest 680 workers, the meat processing factory cannot refill those missing workers. That means NO MORE meat processing! NO US citizens want to work there!
Immigration Agents Arrest 680 Workers in Massive Raids at Mississippi Meat Processing Plants
(MORTON, Miss.) — U.S. immigration officials raided numerous Mississippi food processing plants Wednesday, arresting 680 mostly Latino workers in what marked the largest workplace sting in at least a decade.
The raids, planned months ago, happened just hours before President Donald Trump was scheduled to visit El Paso, Texas, the majority-Latino city where a man linked to an online screed about a “Hispanic invasion” was charged in a shooting that left 22 people dead in the border city.
Workers filled three buses — two for men and one for women — at a Koch Foods Inc. plant in tiny Morton, 40 miles (64 kilometers) east of Jackson. They were taken to a military hangar to be processed for immigration violations. About 70 family, friends and residents waved goodbye and shouted, “Let them go! Let them go!” Later, two more buses arrived.
A tearful 13-year-old boy whose parents are from Guatemala waved goodbye to his mother, a Koch worker, as he stood beside his father. Some employees tried to flee on foot but were captured in the parking lot.
