3. First, "680" undocumented workers" were arrested not 30...

You might want to revise the first sentence in your reply, because it suggests that these large corporations might not be guilty of any crimes.

You said: "That usually means they're trying to piece together which, if any, laws were broken by the employer."

Also, as a result, many of the chicken slaughtering plants - which were working children, who should have been in school, at the time of the raids - were forced to shut down as a result of the lack of workers. Almost every company that I worked for required ALL workers to furnish Social Security numbers, which they submitted to comply with several US Federal laws.

Here is a news article confirming the time of ICE raids, on a school-day.

Mississippi ICE raids: A manager speaks out at a plant that lost most its employees.
"Lian said he arrived at work around 8 a.m. Wednesday, shortly after the raid started."
