Fear grips immigrants after Miss. plant raid
LAUREL, Miss. - A day after the largest single-workplace immigration raid in U.S. history, Elizabeth Alegria was too scared to send her son to school and worried about when she’d see her husband again.

Nearly 600 immigrants suspected of being in the country illegally were detained, creating panic among dozens of families in this small southern Mississippi town.

Alegria, 26, a Mexican immigrant, was working at the Howard Industries transformer plant Monday when U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents stormed in. When they found out she has two sons, ages 4 and 9, she was fitted with a bracelet and told to appear in federal court next month. But her husband, Andres, wasn’t so lucky.

“I’m very traumatized because I don’t know if they are going to let my husband go and when I will see him,” Alegria said through a translator Tuesday as she returned to the Howard Industries parking lot to retrieve her sport utility vehicle.

The superintendent of the county school district said about half of approximately 160 Hispanic students were absent Tuesday.

Fear grips immigrants after Miss. plant raid

Well Boo freaking Hoo, the ILLEGALS are all afraid because those mean old ICE Officers came in and did their job. It just breaks my heart. Poor little Pedro and Juan didn’t sleep well and couldn’t hold down a breakfast burrito worried that Papasito might not ever come back.

Does it sound as if I am a bit calloused to the plight of the ILLEGAL?? If it does, it’s probably because I am. More than a bit calloused actually. I have been blogging for over 2 years now and the entire time I have had immigration, ILLEGAL immigration, as one of my hot button topics.

There are many real Americans in this nation that see nothing wrong with the influx of ILLEGALS that IS crippling this nation. And it’s not just those that claim to be libbers, there’s been a few folks that champion the cause of the ILLEGAL INVADERS that claim to be Conservatives.

Now there is no way that any REAL Conservative would do such a thing so we know that their claims of American Conservatism are lies, but none the less, these folks take the side of the ILLEGAL INVADER and denigrate, as well as threaten those of us that have the GALL to call for hard action against these individuals.

I am all for deportation of all ILLEGALS. I am all for a full militarization of our borders. I am all for shooting ANYTHING or ANYONE that crosses our border at anything other than a LEGAL border crossing. I don’t care what happens to the invaders of our nation, I simply don’t care. They are an infestation and we need to call in Super Orkin for a bit of pest control!

But we need to do it soon, otherwise I don’t suppose it matters too much anymore, after the next election we’re going to have an amnesty approving POTUS, no matter which way the election falls, and the ILLEGALS won’t be ILLEGAL too much longer. They’re going to become the new voting block that keeps the Dems and Dem Lite, the Republicans, in office.

Some folks seriously need to consider this: they are called ILLEGALS for a reason, “No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it.” ~Theodore Roosevelt~

    She works at the Howard Industries transformer plant and drives a SUV? I thought all illegals did were clean toilets, pick fruits and vegetables, and work at meat packing plants. It sounds like she had a darn pretty good job. I wonder just how many unemployed American Citizens would have loved to have that job?

    Mississippi has a 7.9% unemployment rate. I guess we now know one of the reasons why.

    Here’s some information on Howard Industries in Laurel. This isn’t some two-bit operation hiring these illegals, they’re the world wide leading producer of transformers.

    Build the fence from the Gulf to the Pacific. Issue shoot on sight orders at the border. Deport every damn illegal we can find in this county and if the reports are right that’s between 20 and 30 million. Getting rid of 20 to 30 million people who don’t belong here will ease the pressure on services and the environment. That last should make the green-nuts happy, but alas they’re Lefties as well so nothing ever make them happy!

    Deporting that many will also cause a huge shift in unemplyment numbers - and a lot of jobs that “Americans won’t do” will be back in the hands of those they should have been in, in the first place.

    Besides this invader holding down a very nice paying job, there are millions of others who are holding two, three, or four part-time entry-level jobs that our high-school kids can’t get - simply because McDonald’s knows that the kids will want to improve themselves and get raises and move on, while the invaders will be happy with sending home the minimum wage for the rest of their lives.

    I applaud ICE for doing their job. I applaud the tipster for giving the tip. I applaud those who applauded as the invaders were rounded up.

    And, I stand with you, Fred, on the issue of Illegal Immigrants. Always have, and always will.

    By the way, WE aren’t the ones tearing the families apart - THEY decided to tear their family apart by breaking the law in the first place. If you don’t want your kids to be subjected to you being treated like a criminal, then don’t subject them to the life of a criminal.

    Oh yeah. I’m all ripped up inside. *insert massive snark*

    The company, and it’s employees, had plenty of warning, as have all the other companies in MS. Shoulda paid attention! :)

    Here recently, in my home town of about 30k people, I have noticed a large change.

    All of the lots being developed, the houses being built, ditches being dug, and most road construction sites are amiss something.
    That something is illegals.
    I see more and more legal workers (read: white guys) manning these job sites and taking on the hardest and dirtiest of jobs. Apparently, the job crunch has gotten so bad that many people are having to take jobs from the illegals (which, of course, is just fine and dandy with me).

    I don’t pretend to know the solution to the problem, (declaring illegals to be feral would work for me) but they seem to be leaving bit by bit down here in NE Texas.

    To these commie bleeding heart rat bastards actually supporting these illegals that were arrested at this plant: How about we just deport you to Mexico too? That way you can see what a REAL immigration policy is.
    Right before they line you up in front of a cinderblock wall with a blindfold.
