Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are finally releasing details of last week’s raid on a DeCoster Eggs facility in Wright County. U.S. assistant attorney Bob Teig confirms the I-C-E agents executed an enforcement operation on June 14th at several DeCoster plants and at least 36 people were being detained.
No charges have been filed, but one pregnant woman that was detained has been released. It’s the third immigration raid at DeCoster Farms in Wright County since 2001 that has resulted in employees being detained. Officials say a majority of the workers checked had H-2-B work visas, which are commonly used for seasonal workers.
