Arguello, now 17 and married with a child, lost her job on May 12 when federal officials raided the plant and detained 389 workers in the country illegally. Twelve juveniles were among the detainees.

Last week, Iowa's labor commissioner urged the Iowa attorney general to pursue charges against Agriprocessors of criminal violations related to underage Iowa workers. The plant could face up to $1 million in fines stemming from the alleged hiring of 57 juveniles, ranging from 14 to 17 years old.

Agriprocessors officials say that the teenagers who worked at the plant used fake documents to get jobs, so plant supervisors didn't know they were underage. A company spokesman asked the public to keep an open mind.

There is just so much wrong with this entire story, it's beyond pathetic. Those responsible for hiring these children should have their citizenship revoked and be deported along with them.

As for the breeders of these children, what kind of "parents" send their minor children to a foreign country to work and send money back to them?
