160 alien workers detained in Texas

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.
