Coworkers Applaud as 600 Illegals Detained

. Wednesday, August 27

Yesterday, nearly 600 suspected illegal immigrants were rounded up in a small town in Mississippi by Homeland Security's ICE team, the largest raid of its kind. 100 of those detained at the Howard Industries plant in Laurel were released wearing an electronic tracking bracelet for humanitarian reasons , and 17 year olds were transferred to the Office of Refugee Settlement in Louisiana. Fellow workers applauded as the illegals were taken taken into custody. As it turns out, union officials tipped off Federal officials years ago about the illegal immigrants employed at Howard Industries. "Those detained were from Brazil, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, and Peru." By Mississippi law, a company guilty of employing illegal immigrants lose public contracts for three years and the right to do business in the state. As of yet, no company execs have been detained.
