Following the massive ICE Raids in Mississippi last Wednesday – the biggest in over a decade – 680 illegal aliens were arrested.
Out of those 680, over 40 have been charged so far for illegally crossing into the United States!
Our president is all about justice and will ensure it comes to those who deserve it.
Check out this breaking news that is circulating on Twitter:
After liberal outrage over the ICE raids, President Trump stood his ground, stating that the raids serve as a "very good detterent" for illegal immigrants thinking about entering our nation with blatant diregard for our laws.
USA Today has more details on the charges illegal immigrants that were working in Mississippi are facing:
But more than a week after the raids, there are no records of company officials charged with knowingly hiring undocumented workers. This is despite information in federal search warrant affidavits suggesting company officials knew their workers were undocumented.
Some managers knew workers wore ankle monitors to work as they waited on immigration hearings, the warrants say. One of the chicken companies was aware its workers used fraudulent Social Security numbers, a confidential informant told investigators. A human resources employee revealed an employee was hired on two occasions, under two different identities.
When a Guatemalan man encountered law enforcement in Texas, he admitted he had worked at one of the plants, Koch Foods, and reportedly said the plant knew about his immigration status and that there were “a lot of illegals working there."
Authorities said since 2002 they have recorded about 350 encounters or arrests of undocumented immigrants around the country who acknowledged working at either Koch Foods or Peco Foods plants in Mississippi.
The initial wave of about 40 charges filed against workers this week includes an arrest warrant and a sworn affidavit by Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Brent Druery. It accuses each person of either illegally reentering or failing to depart the U.S.
For example, an arrest warrant for Cesar Berduo-Perez said he had three prior encounters with immigration officials — including one in November 2011, near Morton, Mississippi, and another in 2013, in Scott County. When agents raided Pearl River Foods in Carthage last week, they once again found Perez, who is from Mexico.
Perez was deported to Mexico each time, the court documents say. ICE databases revealed Perez never received permission to apply for readmission. Federal law states someone illegally reentering the country can be fined or imprisoned up to two years, or both. They also can be deported.
The new criminal complaints filed against workers stem from the Aug. 7 raids of seven Mississippi food processing plants, when immigration officials arrested 680 people suspected of living and working in the country without permission. Officials called it the largest immigration operation of its kind in more than a decade, and the largest single-state raid ever.
The approximately 380 people still in custody were shipped to detention facilities in southwest Mississippi and Louisiana, authorities said.
Former drug czar under the Clinton administration Barry McCaffrey was among the Democrats outraged over the ICE raids that led to the arrests of nearly 700 illegal immigrants:
Unfortunately for liberals like Barry, the facts just don't back up their claims that illegal immigrants are good for our economy.
The Mississippi ICE raids have already led to job opportunities, better working conditions, and higher pay for legal American citizens.
