ICE agents has quite a day. It was the largest single-state workplace enforcement action in U.S. history. ICE Agents mass immigration sweep netted nearly 700 arrests!

U.S. immigration authorities on Wednesday rounded up hundreds of undocumented workers in food processing plants during a sprawling operation in Mississippi that officials touted as the largest immigration enforcement sweep in a single state in U.S. history.
By targeting workplaces across six different cities in southern Mississippi, Immigration and Customs and Enforcement (ICE) agents, with the help of the local district attorney’s office, apprehended approximately 680 undocumented immigrants.
At a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi Mike Hurst said the large-scale raids collectively represented “the largest single state immigration enforcement operation in our nation’s history.”
“While we are a nation of immigrants, more than that, we are first and foremost a nation of laws,” he told reporters at the press conference, where he was flanked by Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence.
Hurst said authorities relied on both criminal and administrative warrants to execute Wednesday’s raids at seven different work sites. Administrative warrants are usually used by ICE to detain people who are in the U.S. unlawfully but otherwise do not have criminal records.
Albence, who was tapped last month to serve as acting director for a second time, said his agency would look to “swiftly” deport the apprehended workers with open orders of removal. Some, he added, would be prosecuted criminally. More
