Retired ICE Director Tom Homan appears on Fox News to discuss the latest illegal immigrant enforcement action in Mississippi.

(Reuters) – U.S. immigration authorities arrested nearly 700 people at seven agricultural processing plants across Mississippi on Wednesday in what federal officials said could be the largest worksite enforcement operation in a single state. (read more)

      Where are the fines against the owners. This is really out of hand and no one is doing anything about it. And I mean no one. If you fine the owners, then they won’t hire Illegals. When is this administration going to enforce the laws.

      Listen to whatvhe said. IF they have kids under 18, and IF they are the SOLE provider for that minor child, thenbyes they will be PROCESSED, and released for a short time, in order to make permanent arrangements for the child.

      Processed means fingerptints, photo etc. and they can pick them up again if they don’t return after making arrangements fot the child.

      Suppose an American citisen is arrested, for major crime, and is the sole caregiver for a minor child?

      The child initially goes ti child protective services, who will try to find a relative to take them..
      Otherwise, they go into fostrr care, paid for by,…guess who.

      This is NOT ‘catch and release’, its a practical, sensible way to avoid some 5 y.o. dieing, cause his parentvwas deported.

      Not about catch and release, as Dutchman says.

      The important point of the raids, in general, was a show of force. And one done without warning.

      Message being “We can do this, we will do this, and you cannot stop us.” This will scare a lot of illegals and their employers and is likely to start a domino effect of people self-deporting and employers choosing to hire American rather than hiring illegal.

      Going easy on a subset of persons caught in the initial raid is pretty much irrelevant. This is about a far, far larger effort and campaign.

      See the forest through the trees.

      This effort was just the start. And it was executed perfectly, as the media was focused on El Paso and “white supremacy.” They weren’t ready for this, and they won’t be ready for the next raid, either.

    Even more important than catching the illegals is the criminal punishment to the employers who hire them. Deport the illegals and jailing the employers and upper management is the only way we will have a chance to slow or even stop the torrential flow of illegals into the country. If employers are afraid of real jail time if they get caught, they won’t hire them. If they aren’t getting hired then the word will get out and less will come. Some may even leave and return to their country of origin. The 2 prong approach is required.

      Unfortunately, Federal law, just like the much maligned Az law sb1070, makes it a crime to KNOWINGLY hire illegals.

      You can use logic,i.e. “you had 200+ illegals,working for you,,OBVIOUSLY you knew!”

      ADMISSABLE EVIDENCE has to PROVE, beyond a reasonable doubt. Az DID get a couple of prosecutions of employers;
      They got an undrrcover officer, working in management, to gather evidence, conversations, documents, witnessing management accepting documents they KNEW were bogus, etc.

      There,IS a way around this, and it doesn’t require federal action, or impinge on Fed immigration law.
      The Federal immigration ststutes provide a carve out of Federal pre-emption, when it comes to the,STATES authority to regulate businesses, and issue business licences.

      ANY State that wanted to, could require all business licence holders to submit E-verify docs on all employees, or pay fines or risk loss of business licence.

      Good luck trying to get such a law through your state legislature, or your Govenor to sign.

      Gets around the whole “knowingly” issue, as its an ADMINISTRATIVE law requirement, NOT Criminal law, therefire no presumption of innocence.

        Under cover teams on a specific task force posing as undocumented aliens need to be rotated through out the US seeking targeting those industries known to be the largest and most frequent abusers. Once the group is hired with clearly no or inadequate or false documents then the arrests are made. The obviously bogus documents along with the agents testimony at any potential trials will provide the best case and a high percentage of convictions. Once the existence of the task force becomes publicly known, the rest of the law breaking employers will be scared shitless to hire illegals substantially aiding in the two prong attack.

          We can but hope. They HAVE successfully prosecuted SOME companies, before. As Holman said, they will do CRIMINAL investigations for I.D. theft. Any illegals using someone elses SS# gets charged, which means (I THINK) expidited removal. If they can prove the employer KNEW, then ‘harboring’ an illegal.

          • I was thinking, Dutchman, that it really does cause a lot of problems for the owners.

            A business can not make any money if ICE keeps shutting them down and taking their records.

            Pretty soon it makes a lot more sense to be able to show the ICE agents that everyone is legal when they show up at your door.

            If all of your paper work is in order with nothing suspicious and all of your workers are legal then the feds leave fairly quickly.

            Now these ag processors in Mississippi have to go to a lot of trouble to get their businesses back up and running.

            They must rehire a lot of workers.

            I am not sure what they do about the records that the fed have.

            But it would have been a lot better for them to have had legal workers on the site and all of the paper work for all of the legal workers.

            I wonder if this is the message Pres Trump is sending.

            Hopefully it will not be worth the money the employers save on the cheap labor illegals offer.

            The ICE raids their companies suffer from and the work days lost will just not be worth it.

            These companies who have hired illegals in the past will see that hiring legal workers is a much better deal.

              Unfortunately, its NOT having to “go thru this all the time.”
              NEEDS to be, in order to have deterence. They are gambling, playing the odds.

              Better way, really would be for STATE government to make it s requirement, in order to have a business licence, to maintain E verify records on every employee, at the location where the employee works.

              Just like an OSHA inspection. Any illegals found, $10,000 fine per day, for every day the pay records show the employee worked.
              Second time, lose business licence. Right now, any individual business knows they have,a very low risk of getting nailed.
              Like the large # of people that speed on the highway, for instance.
              IF state governments were willing to do this, ICE could concentrate on illegal felons, visa overstays, and States could do a better job of monitoring busineses in their borders, and collect revenue.

              But, while the majority of Americans (even hispanic Americans) support workplace enforcement, the CoC etc. even at State level have formidable firewall.

                I think Pres Trump is doing what he can right now with what he has.

                And right now all he has is federal ICE agents raiding workplaces that are using illegals.

                Right now Pres Trump can only do a few things and I believe he will use these few laws to the max.

                As you point out these companies are playing the odds and when the odds go against them, constant ICE raids and shutdowns, they will stop hiring illegals.

                Sadly right now this seems to be all Pres Trump has to work will until Congress starts to help.

                As you also point out the majority of Americans want stronger enforcement against illegals, in almost every area.

                I am just amazed at our elected officials (Fed, State and local) in ignoring what the citizens want on this issue.

                This is a huge mistake on their part.

                  As you point out so many citizens are for cracking down on illegals in every way possible.

                  Yet we watch the elected officials and the want to be elected officials do everything they can to give the country away to them.

                  It is interesting that so many illegals left Arizona just in anticipation of what sb 1070 was going to be for them.

                  I do not believe that most of the illegals are as entrenched here in the US as people think.

                  The example of your 1070 being passed and then the illegals leaving out of some kind of concern makes me think that if Pres Trump does keep up these ICE raids and doesn’t let off, the illegals will soon get the idea the the US is not the easy pickings that we use to be.

                  Many of them will leave.

                  Pres Trump is trying to Mae America Great Again and if the meat packing companies persist in hiring illegals then he will persist in raiding them and using a warrant to seize their records.

                  He doesn’t want the packing plants to shut down he wants the owners to hire American.

                  As President Trumps says, that way everybody wins.

                  He likes to give people a chance before he hits them hard.

                  I know that you live down there in Arizona fairly close to the border, so just a quick question for you.

                  Any guess at all as to how many illegals we really have here in our lovely country?

                  Any idea as to how many illegals we have here working?

    “You are going to have persons released,” he said. “ICE makes custody determination on a case-by-case basis based on the totality of their circumstances.”

I read later that the Obama IRS could pretty much figure out who was an illegal alien using a stolen SSN, and went to great lengths to accommodate them so the IRS could keep their taxes, and they’d continue filing their taxes, without doing anything to prevent their further misuse of my SSN.

      There must be a logical fallacy name for what the Dems do here, elevating concern for the child over holding parents accountable, creating a perverse incentive for immigrants to put their children at risk to gain advantage. Think about it in terms of African American children growing up without an incarcerated Dad. It’s a distraction technique. They want illegal immigrants, therefore, any excuse to avoid enforcing the law against them is worth more than upholding the law. And anyone who doesn’t want illegal immigrants is painted with their crime of putting the children of illegal immigrants in danger. A form of projection, I guess.

      How does one find out if one’s SSN is stolen? (Other than a monitoring service.) I’ve come to suspect my husband’s has been.

        Advice published in the Miami Herald that my daughter uses for her children. It applies to adults as well:

        Check with the Social Security Administration once a year to make sure no one is using your child’s SSN. Secondly, you need to check your child’s credit report (free – Equifax -1-800-525-6285; Experian-1-888-397-3742; TransUnion-1-800-680-7289.) You can also report fraud to them. By law you are entitled to once a year free report. Therefore, divide the calls into several times during the year. Third, if your child starts getting pre-approved credit cards and other financial offers normally sent to adults, pay attention.

        Other ways you will find out: If you try to open an account for your child and it already exists, or if you apply for financial assistance because he/she is going to college and you are turned down because of a poor credit rating in their name, again that is a big red flag for you to check. Of course when your child is of age and is ready to purchase that long waited car, well he/she will find out if someone stole their identity years before.

As Doppler said govt wants their tax $s & protects these illegals. Miami herald advice is for children who have never had a job or income. They will tell you if there is activity on SS# & that’s it. Even when SSA knows illegals are using your number they refuse to notify citizen about it.

      I’m willing to bet our Gov is providing many of those numbers a/o false identities. Why do you think they’re being encouraged to come here illegally– and WITHOUT any documents? Coming from over 70 different countries, & only to be turned lose in our communities.

      Unless they show up in our data system, having been here before a/o arrested. But not to say that even if they do, that identity is real either. The truth is, they have NO idea who these people are!

    Almost half of these illegal aliens were released for humanitarian reasons. If they’ve committed crimes, charge their butts and seek a conviction.
    What’s the criminal liability for harboring illegals?
    The employer, if he knew, should be charged. If he didn’t know, he needs to start using eVerify.

    A few years ago I had to present myself to the Social Security Administration and the DMV and provide a LOT of documentation to prove my identity. This is because an illegal alien tried to use my Social Security number to get a driver’s license. How he got it or whether he just made it up is unknown, but I was treated like I was the criminal and had to prove MY identity. And I had had my social security number and driver’s license number for over thirty years.

    This incessant harping by so-called ‘journalist’ that “children are being separated from their parents” is getting really old. What’s happpening at the border is no different than what happened to a young mother of a daughter (that I personally know) that was 5-6 years old at the time when her mom went to prision for about a year for illegal activity that she was convicted of. Both the mother and daughter are American citizens, born in the USA. When a person breaks the law and has children, there is a good chance that the lawbreaker will be separated for some period of time from family. It happens to all, regardless of their background because the law is the law. Of course, I’m only referring to ordinary Deplorables, not to the political elite who hold themselves above all laws.

    If I have a child and choose to rob a bank, I’ll be separated from my child. It’s up to me, it’s my choice.

    Similarly, if I am an employer who hires illegals with kids, I am putting them at risk of being separated from their children when and if the government raids my operation.

  19. I have Hispanic friends. (Call them “Latino” if you want, I don’t care.) They haven’t told me they’re “living in fear.” The Castro Brothers are playing an old game, trying to conflate (mix together and confuse) proud American citizens and legal residents of Hispanic descent, with scurrilous illegal aliens.

    If ILLEGAL ALIEN “Latinos” are living in fear, that’s a good thing. I hope they get so afraid that they go home (taking their families with them so no one has to be “separated”), and either vote for and thus impose a free-market, capitalist, non-corrupt government there, or else gain enough high-value employment skills that they can apply to immigrate here legally on a “merit” basis.

    Yes, self-improvement and education can be done, even in an impoverished environment. You think it was easy for LEGAL American immigrants living in impoverished urban ghettos during the Great Depression to become the professional class that built the atom bomb? Remember, every illegal who sneaks across our southern border is cutting in line in front of qualified professionals with valuable job skills — including even doctors — who have applied to come here legally from Eastern Europe, from India, from many countries without a convenient land bridge, who learn English, study our Constitution, work to acquire advanced degrees or certification in a valuable trade, and then wait . . . and wait . . . and wait.

    I’m of Polish descent. From time to time — especially in New England — Polish illegal alien workers get rounded up and deported. (Yes, really.) Does this cause me to “live in fear”? Not in the slightest. I’m all in favor of Polish illegal aliens being rounded up and deported, so Americans can take those jobs (even if employers –heaven forfend! — have to raise wages), and other law-abiding Americans can avoid having their credit ruined by illegals (illegally) using stolen Social Security numbers.

    Do I worry I might be pulled over and told, “Hey you look kind of Polish. Are you an illegal alien”? Not in the slightest. If Americans of Hispanic descent have such worries, they should be the first to speak out loudly for enforcement of immigration laws, and AGAINST states including California issuing driver’s licenses and voter ID to illegals, which can indeed (quite purposely) “muddy up” the distinction between proud Americans and criminal aliens.

    In fact, many are doing just that. These race-baiters are in a panic because they know immigration-law enforcement is POPULAR with many Hispanic groups (especially Cuban-Americans, who helped Trump carry Florida.) The only tools these manipulators have left are race-hatred, and whopping falsehoods shouted at the top of their lungs in a desperate gamble to impose fear..

    Of course in that video with Tom Homan, Fox News hostess chooses the countering opinions of TWO left mouthpieces (even anti America Rep. Castro again today, ugh). They just had to let him pipe in and filter out what ICE is legally obligated, by LAW, to do. She even has to go so far as to pull out her own emotional “heartstrings” the usual ‘sad children’ angle. As a Christian with a conscience, it is always sad to see but does she mention her heartstrings being pulled about babies killed mercilessly right out of the womb or children left without a parent killed by illegals.
    Mr. Homan is right of course.. these are hard choices, and the parent of these children bears first responsibility for coming illegally. We either have laws or we don’t. Parents and others take a risk by coming in illegally with fraudulent SS numbers or any other false documents or ids. That IS a crime! The reality is that their children add more pressure on our already strained public school systems, medical facilities, etc. that we taxpayers must continually pay for. We adults and our own citizen children can not enter the school system, receive healthcare, drive, work, get into college and vote without legitimate documentation. Where’s the fairness in that? I’m tired of the whole illegal (make us feel guilty, make us pay) scam game! Sorry but many good people feel same.

    Privately-held Koch Foods has already been fined $536,000 for 2007 immigration violations at their Ohio plant. When the CEO is judged to be worth $3.3 BILLION by Forbes, perhaps the level of these fines don’t make a dent in the profit/loss, so the question is “At what level of financial loss does one stop breaking the law?”

    Near me ICE is showing up and as the article (linked below) writes “the manager showed me a new letter from the Department of Homeland Security, which runs ICE. The assistant special agent in charge wrote that ICE agents had stopped by recently to copy employment records. Over the next four weeks, they had checked those documents, and found that some of the workers “appear, at the present time, not to be authorized to work in the United States.”

    In my area wholesale raids would be counter productive. It’s not that there aren’t illegal aliens working, the protests would outweigh any benefit. By doing raids in places like this week’s combined with stepping up ICE showing up and looking locally you have people self deporting or at least stopping working illegally. Part of the reason people hire illegals is they are cheaper then fully documented workers and if their competitors are doing it, some place feel they have to, to stay in business.
