300 suspected illegal immigrants caught in SC raid http://www1.whdh.com/news/articles/national/BO90669/ Friday, October 7, 2011 South Carolina In my opinion, The House of Raeford's Columbia Farms a chicken processing plant was shaken to its core when federal agents showed up for a surprise visit to the plant on Tuesday, 10/4/11 (Surprise!) They were looking for illegal alien workers and they found them. The agents popped in on a shift change and demanded to see everyones ID's. This started a hurricane-force stampede of illegal aliens headed for every exit in the building on a dead run! The raid, processing and arrests were an all-day event, one Im sure that the 300 illegal aliens who were arrested wont forget. The feds had been investing the plant for months after the local newspaper reported that most of the employees at the plant were illegal aliens. The Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin McDonald told reporters that the immigration officers raided the Human Resource files and found that most of the 825 employees had fraudulent information in their files. Eleven people, along with the plant's human resources director, have been charged, most accused of falsifying documents. Seven have pleaded guilty, three are awaiting trial and two have fled. (The 2 that fled were probably illegal aliens.) It is unknown if the plant executives will be prosecuted, I think they should be since everyone in town knew the plant was full of illegal aliens and Im sure they knew it too. Officials are arranging to care for children of workers detained in the raid. Those kids will probably get better homes than they had and hopefully they will grow up to be good American citizens. I only wish the authorities would have allowed the kids go with the parents to their countries of origin. Many or most of the 825 employees were most likely illegal aliens and they were hysterically hollering as they stampede out the door to get away. It must have been a glorious site to see, just like in the movies. I bet the adrenaline was running through their veins like heroine while they were escaping. The Feds rounded up the employees they could catch and held them as prisoners in the plant until the documents and head count matched up. The legal ones were let go, and the illegal aliens were arrested and detained. The federal agents put blue bands on the wrist of people who had proper identification. Those who didnt have a blue band were simply loaded up in the paddy wagons and taken to the local jail. Are we supposed to feel sorry for the illegal aliens at this point? I dont because they knew what the consequences were when they broke the law and entered into the United States illegally. They all tried to run because they all knew they broke the laws and were going to be arrested for stolen and fraudulent documents. Do you feel sorry for the bank robber after a heist? I don't think so. Now, those jobs will be open to American citizens with families that need employment desperately. We have 14 million unemployed Americans in America right now. They should have the jobs not the illegal aliens from foreign countries, dont you agree it should be America First. MORE The janitor at the plant didnt know what was going on when he saw the herds of people frantically charging down the hall ways in a full run. One group was headed in his direction so he hid in a broom closet until the herd of people passed. The janitor said he had no reason to run and he checked out legal. The House of Raeford processes chickens and turkeys in eight plants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana and Michigan. It is not known if the other plants will be raided. Some of the illegal aliens used their cell phones to call relatives for backup and to help them escape. OR bail them out in case they were caught. About 50 people showed up to see if their illegal alien relatives and spouses were going to be deported. One man had a friend that worked at the plant. When he heard about the raid he went to the school and took her kids out and brought them to the plant to plea for their illegal alien mothers release. The boys were between 4 to 6-years old. Sheesh, what cowards they are to use their children as negotiating tools. The illegal aliens are good at hiding behind their children and using their children as human shields and using their children to do the dirty work for them. No, doubt the mother was on welfare subsidies and received free education, housing and medical for her Anchor Babies. Well, her meal ticket is gone now, and its her fault and her fault alone. "Families are going to be broken apart," Juan said. "There will be kids and babies left behind. Why are they doing this? Why? They didn't do anything. They only wanted to work." It seems that breaking the laws mean nothing to these people they have the give-me, give-me attitude. They feel entitled and expect everything to be given to them while they break the laws without consequences. I dont think so, the party is over and its time for them to go home. One illegal alien who was simply dropping a relative off for work was arrested for being an illegal alien. He was screaming and crying and saying he didnt work there, but he was an illegal alien, oh, well wrong place, wrong time Poncho!
