It seems that this report has left out the housing simultaneously being built directly behind the plant to house the rumored multiple immigrant families who will be moved into the area at the end of construction. Although I have no proof, as a former employee of the plant, I know that many of the people working there do not live in the community and many do not speak English. It has long been questioned if they are even working here legally. In my opinion, as a citizen of Warren County, Farmland is not a major employer for the community nor is it supportive of the community. It's most unfortunante that while the state fails to support education, it can help support these 50 jobs at a cost of $8 million to the tazpayer.

I agree. You can bet your bippy that these people are illegals. The same with Tyson.
Yes, there are Americans working there. There are just as many foreigners working there as well.
In Monmouth it is a plaque. Many of these people get involved in accidents and have no Drivers License or Insurance and are unable to speak English. Monmouth PD is forced to hire a Translator.
Think I'm lying? Be good reporters, do your job and look into it.
