Immigration bust in NLR

Posted By on Thu, Jul 24, 2008 at 2:31 PM

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers rounded up 13 undocumented workers at the WaCo Manufacturing boat plant in North Little Rock yesterday. They are being held pending a court appearance. The workers were Mexican and Guatemalan, according to my initial source. ICE statement on the jump.

ICE STATEMENT

"Early yesterday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agents served thirteen federal arrest warrants on individuals employed at Waco Manufacturing in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Those arrested face criminal charges for allegedly using fraudulent documents to obtain employment. All were transferred to the custody of the U.S. Marshal's. Their initial appearance is scheduled for July 25 in Little Rock. Questions regarding the charges need to be directed to the U.S. Attorney's Office."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
