    Default raiding workplaces

    I have two serious problems with the raid the other day.

    First, it seems half the people they arrested are American citizens, which seems a indiscriminate way to arrest those who are not.

    Second, Why are employers not arrested?

    I, and many others, have argued for years cracking down on those who employ illegals would be the best way to curb illegal immigration.

    Trump's properties have been caught not only hiring illegals, but helping them get false documents.

    Then the question is begged: why can't they, having jobs, get legal visas?

    The next question is if these people don't do the work, will that work get done, or will the companies have to hire legal people and pay more, which will drive prices up.
    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    One of the corporations whose employees were targeted was Koch Foods:


    Privately held Koch Foods makes chicken products under its own brand and through private labels for buyers such as Walmart. The company is headquartered near Chicago and has no relation to the multinational Koch Industries. It employs nearly 13,000 people in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Illinois and Ohio. Its Morton, Miss., plant produces more than 700,000 tons of poultry feed each year.
    Its owner, Joseph Grendys, is worth $3.3 billion, Forbes estimates.

    I agree that they people in charge of these companies need to do jail time. If their is no demand, people won't be trafficed
