Over 200 Illegal Alien Workers Flee Georgia Chicken Plant Amid ICE Raid Rumors
Illegal alien workers on Thursday fled a Georgia poultry plant amid rumors that ICE was on their way to raid the facility.
The rumors turned out to be false, however, the illegals were spooked and on edge following a massive raid on Mississippi chicken plants a couple weeks ago.
The illegals abandoned their posts in anticipation for the raid, but ICE agents never showed up to Gold Creek Foods in Gainesville, Georgia.
According to News34 Atlanta, approximately 200 workers fled the poultry plant before 11 AM after the rumors started at 8 that morning.
The Telegraph reported:
Police in Gainesville, Georgia — dubbed the “Poultry Capital of the World” — were tipped off by the media reportedly trespassing at the processing plant Gold Creek Foods around 11 a.m. Thursday, the Gainesville Times reported.
An ICE spokesman confirmed there was “no worksite enforcement action at chicken plants in Georgia today” and the Hall County Sheriff’s Office said they had also not received requests for assistance, the newspaper reported.
Seven food processing plants were raided by ICE agents last Wednesday evening and 680 suspected illegals were taken into custody.
It was the largest workplace enforcement actions in the nation’s history, according to a statement released by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of Mississippi.
Americans in need of work applied for jobs at the Mississippi chicken plants recently raided by ICE.
ICE agents should raid the chicken plants in Gainesville Georgia, dubbed the “Poultry Capital of the World” so Americans in need of work can apply for the jobs.
Until the companies hiring illegal aliens are severely punished, the vicious cycle of illegal aliens entering the country only to take jobs and benefits from American citizens will never stop.
