Let's not forget what Donald Trump's voters conveniently ignore and/or forget. Trump's used illegal immigrants at his golf courses and hotels for decades.

On Monday morning, the parking lot at the WIN Job Center in Forest was full.

 

About 25 to 30 people showed up to apply for jobs at Koch Foods' nearby poultry processing plant. Of those, about an equal number were black, white or Latino.

 

"This is what you'd normally see here," said Dianne Bell, communications director for the Mississippi Department of Employment Security, in the two hour stretch from when the doors opened at 9 to 11 a.m.

 

The company, one of four whose plants in small Mississippi towns were targeted by federal immigration officials on Wednesday, contacted the state employment agency the same day to request its help in hiring workers.

Gail,  if everything that you have posted is correct. why there was a need for that company to hire illegals? Have anyone asked that questions from that company?


Because they pay poverty wages, who would want to go to the expense of moving there for employment?

 

Why weren't the employers prosecuted and fined obscenely high amounts to stop them from hiring illegals?  Simple, it's so they can continue paying poverty wages and hiring more illegals.

 

Thank you Mr trump and the RepubliCONS

Come to think of it when someone is arrested these days they are drug tested before they are put behind bars.

 

I wonder why we haven't been hearing about all these immigrants failing  that drug test?


Perhaps its because being undocumented meant they did not have medical insurance so they didn't have the money to obtain the opiods Big Pharma was addicting the lower Middle Class to as part of the Republican plot to build a new America on the ashes of the one they're burining down? Just a guess mind you.

Who Showed Up for Available Jobs at the Mississippi Chicken Plant

 

680 arrested and 25 or 30 showed up to replace them?

 

Saw a show on Wisconsin, high tech plant job, but low pay $ 11 to $ 15 per hour. They were trying to recruit from Chicago, not much success. 

 

So they were getting people right out of jail, drug offenders, probably not pot, probably opioids.

 

70%  recidivism rate.

 

Let me add one thing here, that Wisconsin plant job didn't do drug testing. 

 

Be interesting to see if migrants are drug tested, and what that looks like,
