    Score one for the good guys. What's a meat packing plant pay anyway? These sound like jobs that should go to actual americans, and not identity stealing illegals. The thing is, why pay an American $15-20 an hour, when you can hire a social security number stealing illegal, $8 or $12? Afterall, it's the middle class who pays the difference. Illegal labor is subsidized labor. Guess who pays the subsidy?

    As many as 700 arrested in Iowa illegal immigration raid

    By Nigel Duara and William Petroski, The Des Moines Register

    POSTVILLE, Iowa — A raid by federal immigration officials at the nation's largest kosher meatpacking plant may have resulted in as many as 700 arrests, immigration officials said Monday

    Agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement entered the Agriprocessors Inc. complex in northeast Iowa Monday morning to execute a criminal search warrant for evidence relating to aggravated identity theft, fraudulent use of Social Security numbers and other crimes, said Tim Counts, a Midwest ICE spokesman.

    Agents are also executing a civil search warrant for people illegally in the United States, he said.

    Immigration officials told aides to Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, that they expect 600 to 700 arrests. About 1,000 to 1,050 people work at the plant, according to Iowa Workforce Development, the state's employment services agency.

    Raids like this make me wonder how many illegals are actually here. We're talking 700 at one plant in Iowa.
