WINNIE, TEXAS (WKZO) Forty-two undocumented aliens, who had been working the oil spill clean up in Michigan, have been arrested after they were found inside a couple of buses parked behind a bank in Winnie Texas.
The Buses had been chartered by Phillip Hallmark, the owner of Hallmark Industrial. About 40 others ran off and were not captured. Immigration agents took the 42 to holding cells for eventual deportation.

Can illegals keep money won here?
I came across this searching for Winnie Texas because there was a 250,000 winner in the Mega Millions.
I'm sure it's front page news though. /s
Wow, at least the cops are doing their jobs in Texas. Unfortunately, ICE will probably let them all go...
Is he in the cell with them?
How about throwing the book at Phillip Hallmark?
Those who ran best be careful. There’s gators in the swamps around Winnie.
They wouldn’t accept local workers because they said that the clean up crew needed to be specially trained.
One could wish. He hired sub-contractors who hired sub-contractors, so there ya go.
Is that a fact? I must have missed that. Regardless.
It should also be noted that our marxist congressman in Michigan’s 7th (Mark Schauer) district waited for the job to be done before he decided to worry about the rumors of illegals doing the job.
Here in our local news there were quite a few complaints. Our unemployment rate in this area is at 14% and they wouldn’t hire locals because we lacked training.
I’d hunt up some stories but I’m limping along on half of an elderly laptop for a few days.
A search of stories in Mlive.com might find the info.
This is a pretty conservative area of the state outside of Kalamazoo.
Oil spill, illegals oh my.
Deputies detain buses while feds question workers about legal status
Some are from Winnie. Others are from Port Arthur and Liberty. A few are from Houston.
There are loads of illegals in this neck of the woods. Hallmark knew just where to look.
If they were arrested here in Texas, the workers must have come from this area.
Trust me, your average Obama voter from around that ares needs extensive training to use a shovel.
Are you aware that literally all 76 counties in Michigan’s lower peninsula have operational oil wells. Here in Jackson county we have a considerable number of new rigs both drilling and pumping. I was remarking to my neighbor last night about the number of new gas flares lighting up the sky.
That's absolutely true. The Mexicans were easier to train because it could be done during their long bus ride from God-Knows-Where, and the training materials were in Spanish PowerPoint that cannot be played on an English-speaking PC.
It is also a well-known scientific fact that Americans are not sufficiently docile and can not sit still long enough to absorb this intense 20-minutes of required training. Putting on the protective gear. Fastening the hard hat. Pulling up the boots. Putting on the gloves. Following the supervisors orders in dog-Spanish, sign language, and pantomime. It cannot, cannot I tell you, be done by Americans.
No I wasn’t aware of it but I’m glad to hear it.
What does that have to do with people around Winnie, Texas?
