My wife works for Tyson Foods. One day, about 2 years ago, the mgmt notified the employees that ICE had informed them they were gonna show up and check for compliance. (Nice of ICE to give them notice). 7 or 8 workers quit on the spot... all hispanics. A cpl days later, ICE does their check, and everyone left checks out ok. A week later, one of the girls who quit (she is guatemalan) shows back up and tells a sob story about how she WAS illegal before, but now she has her papers. Yes, she lied and gave false papers before.. but THESE are her real papers... truly... "trust me". She asked for her job back, and they rehired her using the new papers. Not long after, my wife is sitting in the lunch room, and this girl is bragging.. BRAGGING.. about how she and her husband both had full time jobs for Tysons (her husband works at a different facility 30 miles away) and not only do they have full time jobs, she went into Social Services and dragged two of her neighbors kids, claiming she was an unwed mother. She admitted she had no documentation, so they took her word for it, and so she and her husband who both have full time jobs, and no children, were also drawing food stamps, welfare check, and living in public subsidized housing. We have made reports to ICE about the matter, and not one thing has happened as a result.
One day I was in a local grocery store. I noticed a young hispanc lady pushing a cart FULL of food... not just staples, but steaks, frozen foods, pre-cooked stuff etc. You know, the expensive stuff my wife and I cannot afford. She has two children with her, and at the cash register, they are acting as interpreters for her as she could not speak English (which kinda indicates to me she was not likely born in Kansas). She is checking out and whips out a food stamp card to pay for it all. I then see her, as she was leaving, meet up with her husband (they kissed so I assumed it is her hubby or something like that)... and as I follow them out of the store, they load up in a brand new, sticker still in window, Candy apple red Dodge Ram 4X4, tricked out with spinner hubs etc.. Later when I returned to the store, I was talking to the manager who is a friend of mine, and he informs me the hubby was wiring 5 grand back to Mexico. He can afford to wire 5 grand to Mexico, drive that new customized Dodge Ram Truck... and she is paying for expensive foods with FOOD STAMPS? WTH?!?!?!
It really pisses me off to hear about how we cannot seal a border, when my son is sitting on the DMZ in Korea proving you can.
