Bosses Not Charged in Mississippi Raids

One of the largest worksite ICE operations in a decade resulted in the arrest of 680 undocumented immigrants working at seven different meat packing plants on Wednesday. However, it remains unclear if their employers will face any retribution. All 680 worked for five different employers who have yet to be charged or arrested.

Employers in Mississippi may face a fine, but it is unlikely they will go to jail. Officials said 271 of the employees arrested were released with an order to appear before an immigration judge. BuzzFeed News
