"Tim Counts, an ICE spokesman, said about two dozen workers were released from the Worthington, Minn., plant the day of the raid. About 25 workers at the Greeley, Colo., plant were released, as were 27 workers from the Grand Island, Neb., plant, all of whom either had dependent children or were pregnant, he said.
He didn't know how many had been released for humanitarian reasons since the day of the raid or how many were released from plants raided in Cactus, Texas; Marshalltown, Iowa; and Hyrum, Utah."It was decided on a case-by-case basis," Counts said."
for those folks who don't know what ICE is let me give you an eye opening link- ENDGAME
what i do know is that many are being brought up on charges. i also know that ICE is being taken to court for their handling of the whole 'raid.'
now, another question that i have is really a two pronged one: why are we raiding and rounding up these illegal folks when we are using federal dollars to build a multi-million dollar superhighway connecting mexico with canada? and- why then are we using federal dollars to build at least 700 miles of a proposed 2,000 mile wall on the america-mexico border? does anyone else but me see the problem here?
so- if anyone can answer any of these questions for mom and me- we would be obliged.
