Last week, in its largest single-raid in U.S. history, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested 680 illegal immigrants.
According to a report by the Associated Press, the arrests were carried out in seven food processing facilities in towns across Mississippi including Sebastapol, Bay Springs, Morton, Carthage, Pelahatcie, and Canton.
About 600 agents were said to be involved in the operations which targeted several plants owned by five companies.
The sweeps follow comments made by President Trump in July where he said ICE would be cracking down on illegal immigrants who have been served deportation orders.
“In what is believed to be the largest single-state immigration enforcement operation in our nation’s history, today at seven sites,” US Attorney Mike Hurst told reporters. “ICE HSI (Homeland Security Investigation) special agents executed administrative and criminal search warrants resulting in the detention of approximately 680 illegal aliens.”
“We are first and foremost a nation of laws and the Rule of Law is the bedrock, the very foundation, of our great country,” he continued, while adding “I heard someone say that a country without borders is not a country at all and while I agree with that, I would also add that without law there is no order. Without the enforcement of law, there is no justice.”
The Associated Press also reported that the detained immigrants in the city of Morton were loaded onto three buses, transported to a military hangar, and were subsequently processed from their immigration violations.
Acting ICE Director Matt Albence told reporters, “These are not new laws, nor is the enforcement of them new. The arrests today were the result of a year-long criminal investigation. And the arrests and warrants that were executed today are just another step in that investigation.”
Democrat congressman Joaquin Castro had harsh words for the operation, saying, “Let’s be clear: ICE raids of this scale are not conducted for immigration enforcement, they’re to strike fear in our communities in a time when Latinos are already living in terror.”
Congressman Castro has taken a lot of heat lately for doxing San Antonio residents which have donated the maximum amount to President Trump. Six of the donors whose names and employment information he released to the public happened to have also donated to him as well as his twin brother Julian Castro, who right now is running for the 2020 Democratic nominee for president.
