Mass ICE Raids in Mississippi After Workers Fought for Better Conditions Leave Kids Without Parents

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents swept through seven poultry processing plants in Mississippi this week and arrested 680 people. It was the largest single-state raid in U.S. history. The mass arrests also came on the first day of the school year, and some children walked home from school only to find their doors locked and their family members missing. Wednesday’s raids targeted chicken processing plants operated by Koch Foods, one of the largest poultry producers in the U.S. Last year, the company paid out $3.75 million to settle an Equal Employment Opportunities Commission class-action suit charging the company with sexual harassment, national origin and race discrimination, and retaliation against Latino workers at one of its Mississippi plants.

Labor activists say it’s the latest raid to target factories where immigrant workers have organized unions, fought back against discrimination or challenged unsafe and unsanitary conditions. We speak with Jackson, Mississippi, Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba and L. Patricia Ice, legal projects director at the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance.

ICE raided 7 Mississippi poultry plants after workers fought for their rights

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raided seven Koch Foods poultry plants in Mississippi this week, resulting in 680 arrests. Labor activists believe these mass raids were a direct response to a class-action lawsuit filed against the company last year, charging them with sexual harassment, national origin and race discrimination, and retaliation against Latino workers at one of its Mississippi plants. The company was forced to settle for $3.75 million. ICE provided no prior notice to local government officials, leaving schools scrambling to help children who returned home on the first day of school to find their parents missing. We spoke with L. Patrice Ice, legal projects director at the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, and Chokwe Antar Lumumba, activist and mayor of Jackson, Mississippi, about the time leading up to the largest single-state raids in U.S. history and the lasting impact these mass arrests will have on their community.

Is Trump a white supremacist? Chokwe Antar Lumumba says yes

Seven Mississippi poultry plants were raided this week in the largest single-state raid in U.S. history, resulting in 680 arrests. These raids followed closely behind the massacre in El Paso, Texas, where a white nationalist released a manifesto citing a “hispanic invasion of Texas” before killing 22 people in a Walmart. “America is infected with a disease and that is called racism,” says Jackson, Mississippi, Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba.

“Some kids are hiding in their house, Anne Frank-style”. Residents compare trauma of Mississippi ICE Raid to Hurricane Katrina: here.

ARRESTED MIGRANTS GET LITTLE MERCY Immigration and Customs Enforcement  arrested 680 workers in Mississippi at the beginning of the month. At least one of the workers was still breastfeeding when she was detained. Instead of cultivating the workers as sources of information as promised, the Trump administration is prosecuting dozens of them.  [HuffPost]
