Ice needs to check on exxon mobil, ( especially in Hawkins ) but of course they are Big business and then again we are dealing with Ice and not the Navy Seals. Try and get a job there, they say they don't hire entry level...............you should see the check cashing line at Brookshires on pay day!!!!!! These big monopoly's need to be exposed.Oh yea! how much profit did they make the first quarter of 2011??? They make the most profit at almost $4.00 a gallon and hire the cheapest help.

What idiots.We don't have a problem with chineese! When are they going to start raiding contruction sites? Or post a phone number to the public so we can let them know where all the illegals work.6 work with me.And get full goverment refunds,Welfare,Medicade.No arrest because they were all standing like everyday on line St and becham St. Someone needs to take the law into there on hands an really set an example.I have to work with illegals everyday.If they start missing no one can even report it

When ICE conducts a raid but make no arrest either they knew ICE was coming or someone in ICE just wanted chineese take-out for lunch. We know the score, these raids are to make local headlines. If the business would be forced to close as a result of employing illegals then we'd be all about it otherwise, this is just another example of wasted taxpayer dollars by inept affirmative action hires working for a government that could really care less.
