9 August: Hundreds arrested in largest US immigration raids in a decade

Published on August 9, 2019 by

US immigration officials have raided seven meat processing plants in the southern state of Mississippi, arresting 680 mostly Latino workers in the largest workplace sting in at least a decade.
Nearly half of them have been freed on humanitarian grounds to care for their children.
The raids on Wednesday happened just hours before President Donald Trump visited El Paso, Texas, the majority-Latino border city where a man linked to an online screed about a “Hispanic invasion” was charged in a shooting that left 22 people dead.
