Right in my neck of the woods! Butler county doesn't play!

Immigration agents raided a poultry packaging facility in Fairfield early today and arrested as many as 200 illegal immigrants who were working there.

The raid, one of the largest of its kind this year in Greater Cincinnati, is part of a two-year investigation into the hiring practices at the Chicago-based Koch Foods Company.

The Fairfield processing facility is located at 4100 Port Union Road in Fairfield.

Immigration officials described Koch Foods as an “egregious violator” of U.S. immigration laws, which means the company is suspected of knowingly hiring undocumented workers.

Brian Moskowitz, a special agent in charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for Ohio and Michigan, said agents arrived with search warrants today and seized documents and other materials that could be used to build a criminal case against company officials. Search warrants also were served today at the company’s Chicago offices.

While I applaud the effort, this is only a smoke and mirrors effort to hoodwink the public. Next spring President Bush wants to be able to point to minimal efforts like this to justify his open borders amnesty plan. He'll claim we now have comprehensive enforcement of our laws and the time is right for amnesty. Only he won't call it amnesty.

We have between five and ten-thousand illegal aliens crossing over the southern border every single day. Now the Administration arrests a couple of hundred so they can make a headline to make it look like they are actually trying to enforce our labor laws. The truth is, I'd bet half of them have already been released due to their anchor babies.
