stupid, do you think that those illegal immigrants didn't have children? You say saving money on medicaid , wic, and food stamps, well White people have those things too, it doesn't matter if they are illegal or not, they still have families. By the look of your name it looks like your either latin or of latin descent, I feel sorry for you if you are because you are talking about your people, you need to re-check yourself and consider what you are saying. OH and by the way before you go and start swinging curse words at me, I'm Legal and A citizen, so don't try to use that against me.

I am so late on this topic, let me explain my story as it pertains to this. When I moved to SC 2 years ago i carried 19 years of Meat/Poultry/Seafood processing experience with me at the time I lived in the Paris Mountain area. I moved her for reasons that have nothing to do with this forums so I will not share. What I did bring with me was an incredible amount of experience so I choose to apply at companies that suited those requirements. One of the 13 companies was Columbia Farms on Rutherford Rd. 11 called me back for an interview. The two who did not were Bi-lo and Columbia Farms. In the 2 years that I have been here I've learned both of those companies have shady hiring practices. The reason why I am posting this now is that Columbia Farms finally called me back. Two years later! So I ask you" is it really that they hire people who will not do the jobs americans will do or do they just hire who they can abuse and hire as cheap as possible?"

Im late on this topic but all of u that think that it was good they raided the company r stupid. Because all of them that got sent back that have children we r now paying for them to eat and be sheltered. But that doesn't matter to me they deserve the same as anyone else here does. I think we should give them citizenship if they earn it. Because I know if I was over there I would want to be here. So all you racist people go on somewhere. Nobody wants to hear yor nonsense. Some of the best people are hispanic, maybe u racist should give them a chance.

That's right but racist people are often closed minded and will never accept the real world as it is. They are not capable of seeing beauty in all corners of the world as god intended us to do just let them keep living within there walls as they will never be able to see the as we see .

I have a HUGE issue with the EXTREMELY inhumane method of transportation used. I always seem to get stuck either behind or next to their truck on I-85.I have seen dead chickens being trampled by the others who are extremely upset in very tight cages ! This needs to stop NOW! I am campaigning to have this stopped.
