    MAY?! MAY?! These were criminal enterprises plain and simple. Conspiracy has been proven and shown in the manner that they employ individuals. The "possibility" exists but I'll be willing to bet that nothing happens. Nothing

  • a. barker

    If they don't, what's the point of these raids? If the immigrants are doing something illegal like working, then owners of businesses like this, if not paying taxes they should face charges also.

  • the tater

    So you expect me to believe these mexican people who can barely speak english are getting fake license and fake ss cards. I couldn't find that stuff if i wanted to and i am not broke and i can speak english. The company's are hiring these people KNOWING they are breaking the law.

  • Linda Mulholland

    Didnt trump hire illegals ? If so trump should be arrested right along with these companies ! Trump is no better than anyone else that hires cheap labor ! Trump broke the law ! Impeach trump !

  • Boss Hoggg

    You Just wait until us Hispanics take over management in all of these American companies….were never going to hire any blacks or whites…jajajaja La Raz!

  • cisa93

    Im sure these employers knew their immigration status. They pay them cash and less than citizens. This occurred in the SW part of the US before the 2008 Recession. These workers were laying carpet, stuccoing houses, painting and being paid cash at 3-4.00 less per hour. These corporations made BILLIONS….greedy pigs!

  • acgillespie

    Car Insurance company's COULD save us all 50% on our payments as well But they don't & they won't. Kinda like the criminal justice system that keeps protecting the real criminals. Like Big pharma and MSM

  • Dante Legacy

    I wonder who is going to do this jobs now? They don’t give any benefits, pay under the minimum wage. Of course the company knew to abuse everyone and put more money on their pockets. the company knows what they doing. Hard working+pay under minimum wages=$$$$$$profits.

  • Keith Carey

    Toxic tongue trump the demonic demagogue! Fueling Conservatism that is based on bigotry and indoctrination ,treason and tyrannical religiousness. Greedy criminalism .perverts of Kkk and confederacy and nazism plus imperialism and white supremacist ideology. Totally satanic sickos and sellouts!!!

  • Keith Carey

    The federal government and ice should face criminal charges for false arrest and violation of civil rights and assault, because over half of those detained were actually citizens of USA. Should receive millions in damages.

  • HM USA

    Yeah bragging about non-criminal immigrants captured in facilities. AND Epstein $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$…………………….suicide in his cell?!?! Are you naive?

  • Linda Minton

    With all due respect, there are worse illegal aliens to arrest in the cities than chicken processing laborers in Mississippi.

  • Jim Elliott

    I don't know about "prosecuted" but Tysons, Agri, and at least one other were fined 6 figures, but yes they absolutely SHOULD be prosecuted IF found not to be in compliant, especially considering compliance on the companies end is NOT difficult to maintain – no excuse. But of course we know why… they pay the illegals what….35 cents on the dollar, do whatever they want to them basically KNOWING they have no recourse b/c one phone call can end it all. Greed at both ends is the impetus.

    When they're caught then its boohoo I wanted to give the illegals a chance….. yeah, altruism is a regular Wharton staple – NOT! Revenue driven by greed nothing more nothing less.

  • Azriel Hopkins

    I would follow
    The law if I were
    To mistakenly
    Do something illegal
    Just giving you an idea if I was the
    Wrong person.

  • fliegeroh

    Concentrate on prosecuting the employers and stop the hiring of illegals. The illegals will have to "self-deport" without a job. That will solve the illegal immigration problem. But then, we will have a worker shortage and the price of food will go up. Pick your poison. I prefer that we solve illegal immigration first. Then automate the food processing plants.

  • Ace Montoya

    These ICE agents are an embarrassment to real police officers who arrest real criminals not hard working little moms an Dads. How shameful an embarrassment to real law enforcement 🤨😣

  • Padra Maria Herrera

    My husband is Hispanic and has had his identity stolen for work and credit cards by an illegal. Now we can’t do anything with credit on his end.

  • RFI-Crypto Lab

  • John Whittmore

    Its ok just pay the fine and hire new ones …Trump can do it so can they.The owner is republican. Don't worry the didn't pee or spit on or in your meat.

  • marvelousmarvin4th

    Nobody mentioned the complete nullifying of the 4th amendment warrantless arrest, and searches mere suspicion isn't sufficient. The violation of the civil rights acts which in the text protects the alien (illegal or legal) before a person of color or women. "A nation of laws" some are more weightier than others, or should be.

  • Mario Leandro Jerez

    0:45 they are searching them for weapons and drugs? HAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHA #Trump You're in the wrong place if you think they are hiding inside a company as criminals. They are just getting the work done for all of us Americans to enjoy. How mentally ill can you be???? Mr. #PresidentTrump

  • Fred Drew

    yes the employers should go to jail for LOWERING THE US STANDARDS. as well as the health depts. in texas that lowered their standards to KEEP UP with Honduran guatamalan people who don't know what food is or the science of cleanliness. AND THEY DONT CARE. almost every TAQARIA I ate at was infested with non-engrish no speekeeee people who wore flip flops and hadn't bathed and hair hanging down and had jewelry on and dipping their hands in the water to refill my glass.
    not only did texas health dept in all of the coastal bend drop its standards for the Taqarias, the other food chains followed suit stating that if those companies don't have to wear gloves or bathe or wear shoes we don't EITHER. so dq and mcdeez and the pizza joints all told me to my face they don't have to wear gloves cause the state said so. I looked up on the state health website and there it was. employees do not have to wear hair nets as long as the company issues the state health dept a list of what items are used in the food. wtf?????????????????????????????
    so yes the only good thing coming from the INVASION is that the American employees in texas food chains can not only become LAX when it comes to cleanliness, they also don't have to serve food well. it now in texas has become LEFTOVRS AND SCRAPS. SCRAPED FROM THE NEIGBORS TRASHCANS BEFORE TRASH PICKUP. and they will call the cops if you complain.

  • Tom Krohn

    Companies should be prosecuted. Mandatory year in prison. There should be no statue of limitations. Everyone should do prison time including Trumpnazi.

  • WhiteTigerForever25

    This is big business for smaller companies and the huge ones like this… they go down and recruit them, give them all the fake documentation then need for cheap, slave labor. Many bring them in, work them to death just about and then right before payday, call immigration and have them shipped out. I lived In Tucson for 17 years and knew a construction company that did that all the time. They should be prosecuted to the fullest, then deal with the illegals.

  • Hillary Clintub

    Here's a bit more information on those ICE raids: https://www.al.com/news/2019/08/documents-owners-of-raided-mississippi-plants-willfully-used-ineligible-workers.html Not all is as the MSM presents it.

  • Rocket Man

    Employers are helping illegals engage in identity theft. If you crack down on the employers and illegals can’t find work, then they’ll self-deport. good work ICE.

  • CrowdPleeza

    Why did these businesses hire so many illegal workers in the first place? Didn't they know raids would be coming at some point??

  • JustSayin

    TRUMP – WHY HASN'T ANY OF THE LARGER FIRMS BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIRING THE MAJORITY OF THESE ILLEGALS???? E-VERIFY NEEDS TO BE FIXED SO THERE IS NO QUESTION AS TO WHO IS APPLYING FOR A JOB. YOU CAN TELL MY LOOKING AT A MEXICAN THAT DOESN'T SPEAK ENGLISH, WOULD NOT BE AN AMERICAN OR HAVE A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD – HOW OBVIOUS IS THAT? THROW THESE PEOPLE IN PRISON.

  • TheeJeffrocco

    This is not even close to "Massive". Still have 23 million illegals to deal with. So stop pretending this is a big deal!

  • ROXEY

    Good! These people are here are illegally. They're using false social security numbers and ID. Wonder why we have an Identity Theft Problem?

  • Lunar Moonlight

    Please- if they don’t get in trouble, it’s because the Koch brother own the businesses. It goes all the way to the top as far as knowledge who’s being hired.
    Fake id’s isn’t a real excuse. They knew exactly who is being hired. This is atrocious.
    These folks work hard, are dependable and get paid sh💩t. They don’t get government benefits because they must be a United States citizen. What they do is work jobs white lazy people won’t work. Instead these white lazy people are on the dole.
    The highest percentage of welfare benefits is white people.
    Yes I’m white and a social worker. I know exactly what’s going on

  • Patt

    They ABSOLUTELY are also responsible for it too. But they're right, if you start to ask questions about someone you can get hit with discrimination problems.

  • George P

    Thanks to these business owner's, illegals have a job lined up, all
    they gotta do is get here.
    Give the business owner's a stiff fine and jail time and watch how many
    illegals stop crossing the border. But, not to be without compassion,
    there should be a waiver given to businesses and illegals who report themselves in
    to possibly better their case for staying here.

  • David Gainey

    The funny part is these mexians are working while trailor trash stay at home on food stamps and live off the taxes they pay. Wow

  • BEryl DragOn

    I'm not pointing the finger at the president I'm just saying he did hire multiple illegal immigrants for his National Golf Club in Los Angeles, which is more closer to the Border there was an interview with a ex-employer who she used to work there.

  • William Smith

    Looks like one big circle to me.

    Company hires illegal immigrants, that gives ICE the funding and authority to raid, and the apparent immunity from crime for the hiring company keeps the whole thing going.

    As a tradesman, I can say it's the companies and not immigrants that cause economic instability. Companies want cheap labor and the only other option besides outsourcing to China is hiring anyone they can that's already here for as cheaply as possible. It's sort of like that movie where the cops sieze drugs and then redistribute it and keep the whole thing going, a Denzel Washington movie iirc.. but anyways 😔

  • Charles Reece

    Farmers are plowing under crops, orchards are rotting and small businesses are going bankrupt; these raids are robbing america of their temporary and permanent workforce. Stop your whining, Trump told you he was going to do this many times, in fact many cheered him on. 'Build that wall'!
    Canada and South America are selling soybeans, corn and other crops to China US crops are rotting on US ships and silos that were grown by US farmers but can't be sold because of tariffs. 'Lock her up'!
    America has the worse drug problem in the world and getting worse. Prescription and illegal.
    And now your president is acting like Edgar Allen Poe with his conspiracies; do you not think it is time for a change or at least some common sense! There has to be someone in America that can control this man! Where are your leaders?
    'Send them back'.

  • mari brenner

    They fail to realize too many illegal alien invaders ARE DISEASED AND WE'RE QUITE
    SURE THEY WERE NOT EXAMINED BY DOCTORS!! HANDLING RAW CHICKENS THAT WE EAT?? LOCK THOSE FACTORIES DOWN, NOW!!

  • April Divine

    What has happened to ppl, keep the law.. even a young child can say companies that hire illegals are guilty of crimes also, basic kindergarten.. are we all breathing to many chemtrails ??? Prophecy says we will call good bad and bad good..

  • northofthewall2017

    seems trump just put another nail in his own coffin, HE, trump hired illegal immigrants to work in his golf clubs, gardeners etc,  what a joke this government is!

  • Al G

    Black folks in Mississippi are blocked out of those jobs because of illegal immigrants working there. Black folks in Mississippi are going to thank Trump for this.

  • Joseph Davidson

    The raids were coordinated with Koch Foods and Trump, to help attack/terrorize workers and protect the rich They will hire illegal workers again in a month. Watch and learn. This was a fake show by Trump.
