Immigration Officials Arrest 100 Illegal Workers in Raid on Oregon Food Plant
PORTLAND, Ore — Federal agents on Tuesday raided the offices of a food processing plant suspected of employing hundreds of illegal workers who used Social Security numbers that belonged to other people or were made up, authorities said.
According to an affidavit filed by Maximillian Trimm, a special agent with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, only 48 of nearly 600 employees at the Fresh Del Monte Produce fruit and vegetable processing plant had valid Social Security numbers.
Sounds like there may be 552 job openings for American workers tommorrow. Not to mention a lot less fraud, labor violations, tax evasion, perjury and probably some good old fashioned drunk driving and rapes. (crimes for which illegal aliens are disproportionately arrested)
But of course some people won't want to talk about the criminal aspect of this. (as if there is some other aspect) CAUSA already has their "stop enforcing the law" press release out.
Claims that punishing criminals somehow "hurts children" and that "family values" are disrupted by enforcing our laws is absurd. If you, as a parent, put yourself in a position where you could be arrested and leave your children then you are a piece of human filth. You are not a parent.
YOU chose to break the law and you knew the potential consequences. If you fathered/gave birth to children here knowing that you may be arrested and deported then you are garbage.
If you fathered/gave birth to children here knowing that you couldn't legally provide for them and support them then you are scum.
And if you are here legally and you gave birth (more often) or fathered children with an illegal alien knowing that the person couldn't legally provide for their family and could be arrested for their crimes at any moment then you should be ashamed.
Society should look upon these degenerate "parents" with contempt and disgust. Puting children in harms way is not "family values."
I'm glad that these criminals got arrested and that Del Monte will have to hire legal workers who need jobs.

Immigrant supporters decry raid
Immigrant-rights, church and labor leaders gathered outside downtown Portland's Edith Green / Wendall Wyatt Federal Building this afternoon to denounce the raids on Fresh Del Monte Produce in North Portland earlier in the day.
Mayor Tom Potter and Oregon State Rep. Tina Kotek, whose district the Del Monte plant is in, both issued statements in opposition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement action. Potter's statement noted that no Portland Police officers participated.
