A common argument for illegal immigration is that they fill jobs that Americans simply won’t do.
However, after a recent ICE raid on a meat processing plant in Mississippi U.S. citizens are flocking to fill the jobs vacated by illegals.
According to The Daily Caller:
Less than one week after ICE raided 7 food processing facilities in Mississippi apprehending nearly 700 illegal workers, American citizens are rushing to freshly-available jobs.
Koch Foods is headquartered in Chicago but maintains a chicken processing facility in Mississippi that employed 243 of the 680 undocumented Latino workers arrested in the raids last Thursday. Koch has since collaborated with the Mississippi Department of Employment Security (MDES), holding a job fair to recruit new, legal, workers, according to the Associated Press.
The fair raked in 200 applications before noon, according to local media. The company says it will require applicants to present two forms of identification before being hired, according to CNN. MDES will also vet all Mississippi workers for legality using the state’s E-Verify system, according to USA Today.
A Koch spokesman did not directly correlate the job fair with the raids. Instead he told the AP that holding job fairs is routine for the chicken processing plant, especially given America’s strong current economy.
What an idea, when jobs are available legal immigrants or U.S. citizens rush in to fill them. Another Democrat immigration narrative destroyed.
