So Trump’s nationwide immigration raids did not go as planned, but that didn’t stop the hunt. It is ironic however that America loves to accuse these melanated human beings of taking so much from America but whenever they are found by immigration control they are working (making products or performing services) at jobs most Americans would never do.

According to a report from Democracy Now, “Federal agents swept through seven poultry processing plants in Mississippi Wednesday, arresting 680 people in one of the largest immigration raids in U.S. history. Video handed out to reporters by Immigration and Customs Enforcement shows agents entering factories, leading people out in plastic handcuffs, frisking them and loading them onto buses.

Notice the employees were arrested but not the employers who had to know that they had ‘illegal immigrants’ working for them. The report goes on to say, “They were taken to a massive Mississippi National Guard hangar for processing. Outside the base, dozens of family members and supporters gathered, chanting “Let them go!” The mass arrests came on the first day of the school year and left scores of children traumatized and crying for their parents. Some children walked home from classes, only to find their doors locked and their family members missing.
