ICE agents swept through seven work sites in six cities across Mississippi arresting approximately 680 undocumented immigrants. It was the largest single-state workplace enforcement action in U.S. history.
American kids are separated from their parents on a daily basis when a parent is incarcerated, even if that parent is the family’s only provider. If you come here illegally, you are the one responsible!
I do have sympathy in my heart for these children, but the only people to blame for their broken-hearted tears are their parents for breaking our laws.

Here is the lowest of the low, interviewing a crying 11-year-old child to support an argument. Nice job CBS. No shame in the MSM news game, huh?
On the 1st day of school in Mississippi, kindergarteners were begging ICE agents to see their parents. This cruel raid had one purpose: to terrorize and torment. If you aren’t outraged, you aren’t paying attention #defundhate #defundICE #AbolishICE #FamiliesBelongTogether https://t.co/RhojfsPqkh

Yesterday, you were taking photos and videos rather than focusing on the victims of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. Then today your ICE agents raid processing plants in Mississippi and separate children from their parents on the first day of school. #NotChristLike

In Mississippi, children were not picked up by their parents from school because they had been caught up in the LARGEST raid in history by ICE agents, leaving families scrambling for answers. Not only is this horrific, but traumatic.
America is a shame.

#ICEraids are lame-agents get a bad name rounding up otherwise law abiding, hard working agricultural workers-Poultry processing is a shitty job citizens will not do-Now families are devastated & the reputation of ICE has suffered another blow. For what? Shameful misuse of power.

This is family separation, and we cannot look away.

How can anyone sleep tonight? Trump is using the gun massacres to create campaign ads while ICE agents are rounding up Hispanics in Mississippi. https://t.co/mcLHvbod5B

Today ICE agents arrested 680 people in Mississippi in the largest single-state raid. Children finished their first day of school with no parents to go home to tonight. Babies & toddlers remained at daycare with no guardian to pick them up. This is not ok. This is not America. pic.twitter.com/2yK2M8KvbN

Trump is a racist & always has been. Ppl r calling this a turning point but he has always been the same person. He understands the fear of the Latino community. He enjoys their fear. He put down ICE agents yet look what happened today in Mississippi. TRUMP wants a white US

Who will be there for the children when they come home from school? Mass arrests in Mississippi are family separation by massive means. Cruelty seems to be the purpose. https://t.co/hsuQxT5AzR
