That’s (probably) right, so did you “Fresh Mark.”
On June 19, 2018, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers identified and arrested 146 “Fresh Mark” employees working at the Salem, Ohio (in northeast Ohio, about 30 miles southeast of Cleveland), meat processing plant for immigration violations.
Fresh Mark employs over 2,800 people at several locations, according to their website.
The 146, who were arrested, were suspected of utilizing stolen or fraudulent identification to gain employment.
I can only speak for myself, but based on my experience, and getting hired at various jobs, it seems to me that the company in question here must have “looked the other way” to a certain extent in order to have 146 illegal immigrants working for them.
I would be interested in knowing whether the company took advantage of these individuals in any way, of if they were treated like any other employee.
Obviously, someone must have tipped off ICE at this company. Whoever it was, “good job” from MrEricksonRules.
Hopefully we’ll begin to see more and more instances like this, where ICE is catching up with these people and sending them back to where they belong, wherever that may be.
Just imagine how many more American jobs these illegal immigrants are stealing.
Imagine how many more, legal, American citizens could be employed in our country. That number is undoubtedly in the millions.
