    The ICE Raids In Mississippi Were About Suppressing Worker Rights

    it appears that ICE decided to raid companies based on successful unionization efforts and EEOC complaints:

    The workers, many of them members of the United Food and Commercial Workers union (UFCW), were employed by a company called Koch Foods Inc, which employs 13,000 workers throughout the US.

    In 2018, following a nearly eight-year-long legal battle, Koch Foods Inc. settled a $3.75 million brought by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Koch Food Inc at the plant. The lawsuit alleged that Koch Foods Inc supervisors engaged in both racial and sexual harassment of Latina workers at its Morton, Mississippi plant.

    The lawsuit brought by the EEOC against Koch Food Inc’s alleged “that supervisors touched and/or made sexually suggestive comments to female Hispanic employees, hit Hispanic employees and charged many of them money for normal everyday work activities.”

    In June of 2018,
    ICE raided a unionized Fresh Mark meatpacking plant in Salem, Ohio; arresting 140 workers.

    A week before the raid on a Fresh Mark’s Salem facility,
    the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fined Fresh Mark $211,194 for three separate incidents in which proper guards for dangerous machinery were not in place.

    OSHA found that the lack of safety guards resulted in the death of an undo ented worker.

    Su ion was also raised that workers complaining about working conditions in plants lead to a raid at the Southeastern Provision in Morristown, Tennesse.

    The raid came after federal authorities were tipped off by a local bank that the owner of the plant may have been paying undo ented workers under the table.

    “These raids send a real signal to immigrant workers not to speak up, and we feel like these raids enable employers in the most dangerous industry to cut corners and violate labor standards,”

    The illegal employers always skate free, while illegal employees get screwed.

    Koch Foods got caught stealing wages and sexually harassing workers and paid 4 mil to settle it.

    Then they (allegedly) called ICE on their own workers, because they knew they had hired illegal workers -- , they probably provided the false do entation. How can half a company's workforce be illegal and they don't know it?

    If employers got punished, this would end with a quickness.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    The fu niest thing about these raids is they needed like 645 agents tor round up 610 immigrants

    That's like a ing 1-1 ratio

    Never heard something so gay in my life

    These gots are ing petrified

    So basically the max they could deport is around say 50,000 immigrants during next couple years if they use 1-1 ratio. Good luck deporting the other remaining millions

    Not quite, they let about half of them go. No word yet on whether those were humanitarian exceptions or legit US citizens and residents.

    True that. So it's a 2-1 ratio

    And , if only half are legit residents and citizens, that's a good batting average, right?

    What raid? I heard something about them busting a bunch of illegals stealing American jobs but I disregarded it because I was told that doesn't happen.

    Naturally because that's where a large group of illegals would be.
