"The plant employed 1,000 workers, but was forced to file for bankruptcy after several of the plant's managers faced charges for hiring illegal workers and helping them obtain forged paperwork. The plant was purchased by Agri Star Meat and Poultry, which has gotten the plant back up and running and uses E-Verify."

This is proof that e-verify works. Also that businesses who do not run their operations correctly will fail and another company will just buy it out, and turn it around.
Good job Agri Star Meat and Poultry, others should be looking to you as a model for business.

There would most likely be more Kosher plants if this company had not unfairly competed in the market by using illegal workers and ignoring safety and work regulations. The previous owners had a near monopoly on the market because they were able to under cut competitors by breaking the law. I wonder how many companies went under before the raid because they could not compete against these criminals.
Why is this success story of immigration enforcement not on CNN, CNBC or any other main stream media? They certainly reported the raid and how these criminals were suffering. They reported that the town was dying because all of the illegal aliens were either deported of fleeing but they will not report on the fact that 400 Americans and legal immigrants will now have jobs at a time of record unemployment thanks to enforcement of immigration laws.
Go ICE!

The plant was never able to operate beyond 40% capacity since the raid, because IT COULD NOT FIND WORKERS. At that rate the regional loss of business was estimated at $200 million per year. This meant the loss of 5,800 American jobs that depended on undocumented migrant labor.

CLUE ONE, pull up a regional map of the area, they could find workers because the nearest city with a population of 45 thousand or more was 50 miles away.IDIOT

So much for Americans will do the jobs that illegal immigrants do.

Who the hell drives 50 miles for a crappy paying job anyways?

Once again illegals do the jobs that Americans are unwilling to do.

You people rant that illegals are stealing American jobs and when a company actually needs a legal workforce no American is around wiling to take up those crap jobs.

Thats the point clueless, they built that planet at that location because they knew citizens would not be driving at distance. So the illegal border scum (see yourself) slide under the border and worked those jobs, UNTIL THEY GOT busted, NOW CITIZENS ARE WORKING THOSE JOBS, while we hope the ones that got sent back home died in the desert sneaking in again

I think they should allow boat loads of people from Somalia to immigrate to Mexico and compete with Mexican citizens for jobs there. I wonder how that would sit with the Mexican people.

If they pay a living wage, they will get workers. I want to know what the cost of living there is and what they are offering for pay. Where I am you need $30 - $40K a year to live modestly. $35K works out to be roughly $2900 a mo. Cost of living is higher here than in many areas now (it was not when we moved here). Pay a living wage and people will take the jobs.

No you are the clueless, they built the plant in Postville because that's where the farms are and that's where the meat is and that's where another plant used to be. So what is your point?
