The raid today at Agriprocessors, Inc. meat packing plant targeted individuals who were using stolen Social Security numbers. Officials say at least 300 have been arrested but that the number could go as high as 700.
The raid was the largest of it's kind in Iowa according to Claude Arnold of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Several raids like this across the U.S. every day might start getting the message across.
Darn it. They grabbed my wife, our seven kids, my three aunts and about 24 cousins. Now what will I do on Friday nights?
Electing a president who was serious about Border enforcement would have been another ‘message’. Alas, we have illegal alien coddlers instead.
Half of them will probably be back next month....
Build the dammed fence!
No! I'm shocked I tell ya!
It is worth noting a few things here:
1. Identity dealers prefer children's identities
2. Illegals need an identity (SSN) to work
3. Those who have used the stolen identity to work and get loans etc (victimizing citizens and children) would have been granted amnesty thanks to McCain-Kennedy
4. Legal immigrants, who don't engage in this crap and those standing in the awful visa lines (trying to come in legally) would be told "tough luck".
Nice set of incentives, if you ask me.
Update from Des Moines Register with more info on the raid.
Get this load of crap from Agriprocessors website....”In 2003, one of Postvilles largest employers, the Iowa Turkey Processors (ITP) plant burned to the ground, displacing over 300 employees. Agriprocessors hired all the former ITP employees who applied for work and provided appropriate immigration documentation.”
Good. Agriprocessors processes kosher meat and is notorious for their failure to use kosher methods for slaughter. They had a big scandal a few years ago because of this.
Shame upon them for their methods and shame on them for using illegals, which I'm sure they pay less then they would for using regular Iowa workers. I hope they prosecute the owners and managers to the fullest extent of the law.
“Now what will I do on Friday nights?”
Cash their pay and SS checks?
“is notorious for their failure to use kosher methods”
I wondered how they kept their certification with that many illegals. False paperwork forged for the workers, same for the kosher cert, I suppose.
About freaking time they start enforcing the law.
They are very meticulous in their kashrus. The "not kosher" smear was perpetrated by the wonderful folks at PETA.
It’s not just the illegals. You can see them rip out animals tracheas on YouTube. That is not part of kosher practice.
There is a ton of info about this plant on the internet; just google.
Are you a member of PETA?
