ICE detained 160 illegal aliens working for Lord Trail Trailers yesterday according to authorities.
Federal authorities detained well over 100 undocumented workers on Tuesday in a surprise raid at a Texas manufacturing company.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detained 160 workers at Load Trail, a trailer manufacturing company that was previously charged with knowingly hiring undocumented immigrants for labor, federal authorities said.
The workers were taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon as Texas agents executed a criminal search warrant at the company’s Sumner, Texas, facility, located about 100 miles northeast of Dallas.
Load Trail Trailers paid a $444,493 fine for “knowingly hiring and continuing to employ unauthorized workers,” in 2014, at that time they employed 179 alien workers.
