Koch Foods hosting job fair after ICE raids leave them understaffed


IT SEEMED THEY HAD A LITTLE SELLING PRESSURE HERE. WE WILL WATCH IT.>>>A JOBS FAIR IS BEING HELD TODAY AFTER I.C.E. RAIDS IN MISSISSIPPI WERE LEAVING A LOT OF THE PLANTS UNDERSTAFFED. RICK LEVENTHAL HAS MORE. HEY, RICK. REPORTER: HEY, NEIL. A STEADY STREAM OF PEOPLE SHOWING UP AT THE BUILDING BEHIND ME. WE ARE TOLD 150 APPLICANTS IN THE FIRST THREE HOURS OF THIS JOB FAIR WITH ABOUT 30 MINUTES LEFT TO GO. THEY HAVE NOT SAID HOW MANY PEOPLE THEY ARE LOOKING TO HIRE BUT THE FOLKS WE SPOKE WITH SAID THEY ARE DEFINITELY READY TO GO TO WORK. KOCH JUST ONE OF SEVERAL CHICKEN PROCESSING COMPANIES TO GET RAIDED BY I.C.E. AGENTS LAST WEEK WITH 680 WORKERS DETAINED FOR POSSIBLE IMMIGRATION VIOLATIONS AND OF COURSE, THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF CRITICISM OF THE RAIDS, MUCH OF IT FOCUSED ON THE SEPARATION OF CHILDREN FROM PARENTS WHO WORK AT THESE CHICKEN PLANTS. I.C.E. RELEASED A VERY STRONGLY WORDED STATEMENT YESTERDAY TO TRY AND CLEAR UP WHAT IT SAID WERE RUMORS AND FALSE INFORMATION, SAYING EVERY CHILD WHO HAD TWO PARENTS ARRESTED LAST WEEK HAD AT LEAST ONE PARENT RELEASED WITHIN 24 HOURS DUE TO HUMANITARIAN REASONS. WE ALSO EXPEDITED THE PROCESSING OF ADULTS WHO IDENTIFIED THEY HAD A CHILD IN NEED OF CARE. MORE THAN 300 WERE RELEASED BY DAWN THE NEXT DAY AND I.C.E. SAYS WE ARE THE ONLY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY THAT DOES SUCH THINGS TO PERSONS ARRESTED BY A FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. THE REALITY IS ADULTS WITH CHILDREN ARE ARRESTED ACROSS AMERICA EVERY DAY BUT YOU DON’T HEAR ABOUT IT UNLESS IT INVOLVES I.C.E. AGENTS. SOME OF THOSE RELEASED HAVE ANKLE MONITORS AND COURT DATES. THE REST ARE BEING DETAINED IN THREE SEPARATE FACILITIES WAITING ON BOND HEARINGS AND DEPORTATION PROCEEDINGS, AS KOCH AND THE OTHER COMPANIES ARE LOOKING TO FILL THOSE SLOTS THAT

    You see they want to give jobs to illegals,and pay them the very minimum ! Then they will say, why should we pay American Citizens, what they think they deserve ? Democrats don’t have our interest at heart ! They want open boarders, to flood cheap labor ! Wake Up! People, Trump is fighting for Americans!!!❤️. 🦉. Visitor. L. A.

    You guys can't be mad. These are major republican donors. They will not be charged with crimes. They line the pockets of every scientist who supports fox listeners views that the environment is fine. Just saying.

    Why weren't the Koch bros and other business owners jailed as well. Isn't it illegal to hire undocumented workers? Why no arrests? Skin color justice as usual.

  • MidnightModder

    Koch foods needs to be punished for employing illegal aliens! However if they honestly didn't know then at least Legal Americans are getting jobs now.

  • MrJr

    It’s almost like Americans actually want to work. Hmm. 150 applications. That’s insane. Pretty smart move by Trump. Announce raids but then do them at a later date. Keep opening jobs in America for AMERICANS to fill.

  • Lucas J

    Funny that the illegals win a law suit.. then the company calls ice on them. And no one questions the employers. Corporate BS.

    They only hire part time in Mississippi when it’s Americans. Factors, Casinos, most 20-40 age group is gone because of the Temp, hire here. $7 min. Wage, no insurance offered if part time. Government assistance $0 if you make $800 a month no EBT no Medicaid. If you have a raggedy car or truck it’s property which automatically disqualify you. So Mississippi immigrants are used instead of the suffering Americans. That’s both race. Only persons angry are company’s over ice coming. Everything happened goes back to the illegals taking a risk most criminals bringing their babies in situation of more crime, you illegal. They never would because, they have criminal record. Sorry but apply if you’re not a criminal? People realize the citizen in Mississippi is dirt poor. Obesity state, can’t afford fresh foods, healthy foods on the money in your pocket. Fried chicken, yes. 10 pound bag for $4-7 dollars a gallon oil $4, yeah it’s chicken rice$3 a 5 pound bag yes cheap eating = obesities in this state. Trump we need factory jobs it’s like no future if you younger than 50 yrs old, life here is Hopless.

    hats how those Koch fella's stay rich, hiring illegals for less pay and benefits. I hope they're fined for every illegal they've hired!

  • TraRob-EastSide

    Trump needs to ask pelosi, schumer, etc…. why are there americans either unemployed, under-employed, or seeking extra income applying for these jobs???

  • Imricksboss

    Have you ever been inside a chicken plant?!? The absolute nastiest most vile and disgusting place ever. The smell is atrocious and there is feces everywhere but keep not washing you're chicken.

    Y'all should have let the working man work. Ain't nobody going to last more then a week. It's not normal work. I commend anyone who can and dose.

  • One Two

    Quite yalls crying. If employers go to jail then the business folds and Americans lose out on a possible 600 + jobs.
    Here is your golden chance Americans. MAGA 2020, Let's put Americans to work, let's get the homeless off the streets.
    NO excuses this time. It's in yalls hands now. Go get these jobs. What more do yall want.

    When you break the law, there is a consequence! C N N ,condones and shows the heartbreak the result of the parents decision to break the law here,in America. CNN is the evil and enemy of the American People, Think! How Radical Entities want open boarders. To bankrupt the United States of America. You can only control broke,and dumb down people. 🦉.

    ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL. Finally, Americans taking American jobs that rightfully belong to us. Companies and corporations that hire these illegals should be HEAVILY FINED AND PUT IN JAIL FOR FRAUD and for aiding and abetting this illegal activity.

  • hillary clinton

    People don’t understand that most illegals have socials. Whether there legit or not is not the employers problem. When I hire people I never ask.

  • Kenneth Wallace

    people who are trying to work and feed their families being treated like criminals… okay… I guess, technically they are criminals, but this is pretty f—ed up. So, is Koch Foods being held responsible for this? if having a job, in the US, is illegal, doesn't that make Koch an accomplice?

  • Edelwina Mallari

    Yes of course those illegals should go!!! They want or insisted to be in US then they don't even speak English..They drained Uncle Sam's benefit they are SUCKERS!!! They intentionally birthe alot of kids and used them not to be deported !!! Idiot fools suckers!!!Thanks President Trump…

  • New Horizon

    Finally now some job for legally documented workers, hey if we want $15 an hour minimum wage we need illegal cheap labor gone and it's for us after years of low pay, not some person perching!

  • WildBill22360

    They owned George Bush. Thats one reason we have such horrible immigration issues. Its not the workers, it chain migration where one worker brings in double every two years, and each one of them bring double. So on and so on. Stop chain migration. Immigrants should not be able to bring anyone else in for twenty years. Why are the owners and managers not in jail?

  • Lucky Davis

    Why don't let Americans out of jail when they arrest us to watch your children this is a disgrace to the American people we should be arresting these illegals and charging them with child abuse for bringing their children to America and we should be arresting employers who hire them

  • Kerfuffle 226

    Wow… Why isn't Koch being punished for hiring illegals? If there were extremely harsh penalties for hiring illegals, than there wouldn't be jobs for these people to do, and maybe less people would come to our country illegally to obtain these jobs. Also… I feel bad for the people lining up to work for these crooks.

    Lmao at conservatives staying salty at the employers. That is CAPITALISM BayBeeeee, we globalists now 😎😎😎💯
    Like any of you would walk around in chicken crap. And remember anyone who lost their job to an "illegal" DIDNT WORK AS HARD lol I need my chicken cheap for the spicy chickfila sandwich

    Bring in da immigrants, end tha welfare state, legalize abortion and weed, let me keep my big mags. what side am I now? The one with all the fun stuff 😎

  • H. Phillip

    They called ICE themselves because their employees complained about job hazards. The scabs they brought in will leave or complain next.

    i have been in the hiring phase on both sides employee/employer and if the docs are presented thats it … now once the person is flagged via irs the gov does nothing … stolen identities and claiming zero … the person w/the real name is sent a bill and they go after them w/the full force of the irs pisses me off … that is why its not just a border problem everything they do once here ..they need to be breaking more laws to stay….. the employer has no way of knowing even if they do flag it in dc they do not tell the employer …. another topic look they may have a good idea they are passing false docs …but there is no way to tell …and if they say ok we can't hire these people because we believe them to not be who they say they are ..the next day the ACLU Anti Christ Lucifers Union will file suit and put your company out of business

    I reject the idea that any job is too hard or too dirty for American workers to do. American workers just expect and demand to be paid a living wage. An additional obstacle is American companies are doing so well hiring illegals for slave labor and Americans for as close to federal minimum wage as they can get. Are you seeing the scale effect? Report illegals everytime you see them at work or no matter where they are here in the USA if you want to make a difference

  • Vincent Blanchard

    Here we are, the so perfect koch brothers are making big money employing illegals. Sue the bastards and get the money back plus huge punitive damages, they can handle it and it would be a great example.

  • Dgaf brapman

    When you have so many illegals that you need to have a damned job fair, its time to fine the company in a way comprehensive to the amount of lost tax dollars.

  • Madison One

    So open borders Koch brother mofos are employing illegals over Americans. Pay up! 🤬
