Give 'Em a Hand!

The largest single-workplace immigration raid in U.S. history has caused panic among Hispanic families in this Mississippi town, where federal agents rounded up nearly 600 plant workers suspected of being in the country illegally.

I know this story happened several days ago, but I think it deserves special mention. Here's some food for thought: If immigration authorities managed a haul of 600 illegal aliens working at one plant in a small Mississippi town, what does this tell us about the sheer number of these people sneaking into our country?

Here's the best part of the story:

One worker caught in Monday's sweep at the Howard Industries transformer plant said fellow workers applauded as immigrants were taken into custody.

Heck, they should've had a hoedown, afterwards.
