Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 16, 2019

The Washington Post is reporting that officials now say "they have probable cause that all five companies operating poultry plants raided by authorities in Mississippi last week violated immigration law by knowingly hiring undocumented immigrants, according to search warrant affidavits that cite videotaped statements of managers." On the basis of those search warrants, immigration officials had cause to arrest managers or executives of the companies during the raids. They didn't. "

Homeland Security investigations agent Anthony Todd Williams Jr. wrote in one of the search warrant affidavits, newly unsealed, that there is probable cause to believe that the companies intentionally hired undocumented workers with fraudulent documents "for the purpose of commercial advantage or private financial gain." He also wrote that individuals or companies that had "actual knowledge" of violating the law in employing undocumented workers would be subject to fines or imprisonment.

Punitive actions against whites/business owners to stop illegal immigration in it's tracks?

The hell you say.

Republicans don't REALLY want to end illegal immigration.

They just want to talk about it to rile up their base.

Face it, Republican voters will believe anything.

I personally can't wait for your posts slamming Schumer, Pelosi, Hillary and Obama for not personally arresting them as clear evidence of the Dems being for open borders.

Want to slow down illegal immigration? Two simple steps:
(1) Arrest plant management, convict them and send them to the county farm to serve out their sentences
(2) Fine the plant ownership in amounts that, when combined with their current labor cost, are greater than their labor expense would be if these plants employed 100% American workers

The cost of chicken would go up, but the exploitation of workers would go down. Try it--what have you got to lose?

You won't hear a peep from them JPW, except to paint ICE as a terrorist organization sowing fear in communities and traumatizing children. Democrats want them to continue working, illegally, using stolen identification....

...for slave wages.

Any attempts to arrest them will be met with hysteria and drama. *AS SEEN ON TV*

So you think the top executives of those companies are Democrats? I seriously doubt it. And remember who told us, "they're just coming here to do jobs Americans won't do." Clue, he ain't no Democrat.

So you think...

It's sheeple.

The answer to that is clear.

#12 "...for slave wages."

Tyson Foods pays more than minimum wage. Laborer wages start at $9 - 16. Many jobs pay more.
Not slave wages, a slave works for nothing but food and substandard housing and cannot quit and could be sold to others.

Perhaps if the federal minimum wage was $15/hr that there would be a sufficient number of 'legal' residents (American citizens and green card/visa holders) willing to take these jobs that hiring undocumented workers would no longer be an advantage for the corporate owners.

"Faux snooze". IOW, fake sleeping. So Faux snooze means awake and alert.

If you are going to use cutesy names for a news network you don't like, choose names that don't actually give them credit. Suggestion: Faux News, or Fox Snooze.
