Later in the day on the 27th: See news about the “ripple affect” here.
And, the first eight illegal aliens went before a judge here.
The eight are facing the federal charges because they are accused of fraudulently using social security numbers, residency documents, and work-related forms. Most of the fraudulent identities were stolen, but at least one person’s identity was a dead person.

Thanks to Blulitespecial for the tip. ICE has raided a manufacturing facility in Mississippi and taken into custody 600 suspected illegal aliens.
Federal officials say nearly 600 suspected illegal immigrants were detained in a raid on a manufacturing plant in southern Mississippi, making it the largest such sweep in the country.
Howard Industries of Laurel, MS also employed minors who are now in the hands of the office of Refugee Resettlement according to news reports.
Nine 17-year-olds were transferred to the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Why ORR— because it manages the federal Unaccompanied Immigrant and Refugee Minors program here. That is a program not without controversy of its own.
