DAILYKENN.com --Seven food processing plants were raided by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week. The sweep resulted in 680 aliens being detained. It is "the largest single-state immigration enforcement operation in our nation's history."
Illegal aliens snatch up jobs that would otherwise be held by American citizens. Employers prefer aliens because they work for less money. Aliens often transfer portions of their earning to the homeland where rates of exchange inflate the purchasing power of the dollar. One American dollar, for example, may buy $10 worth of goods and services in another country. A $5-per-hour job would effectively pay aliens $50 per hour in purchasing power.
One news source lamented that a small child was left without parents after the raids. The report failed to mention the number of American children whose parents are unemployed or underpaid due to the flood of aliens in the workplace.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Wednesday that its officers had raided seven food processing plants in Mississippi and detained approximately 680 "removable aliens" in what a federal prosecutor described as "the largest single-state immigration enforcement operation in our nation's history."
Nearly 600 ICE agents swarmed the plants in Bay Springs, Carthage, Canton, Morton, Pelahatchie and Sebastapol, surrounding the perimeters to keep workers from fleeing.
"The execution of federal search warrants today was simply about enforcing the rule of law in our state and throughout our great country," U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst said in a statement. " I commend these federal agents, our state and local law enforcement partners, and our federal prosecutors for their professionalism and dedication to ensure that those who violate our laws are held accountable."
