The largest immigration raid of the worksite in history’s aftermath has reeled up a community of Mississippi. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers raided seven chicken processing plants in the region of Morton, this Wednesday. About 680 unauthorized workers of the plant were arrested by these officers.
Dozens of children found their parents gone after they returned from school. ICE says it is illegal for the immigrants in any of the sectors of the US without appropriate authorization and this operation was conducted to enforce the immigration laws of the US. Although the ICE officers have all the legal rights to conduct a raid of the workplaces with a warrant, on Wednesday, a completely new shade of light was cast on the cruelty of the US immigration laws.
This incident revealed certain follies that exist in the fundamental law of US immigration policy. The main reason behind immigration is not even addressed by American laws. Immigration is an outcome of high demands for low-skill works and there are practically no enough workers to fill these vacancies up. It is impossible for a low-skilled worker from Guatemala to wait in the queue for a visa to work in a chicken processing factory.
