Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 10, 2018

U.S. immigration agents descended on dozens of 7-Eleven stores before dawn Wednesday to open employment audits and interview workers in what officials described as the largest operation against an employer under Donald Trump's presidency. Agents targeted about 100 stores nationwide, broadening an investigation that began with a 4-year-old case against a franchisee on New York's Long Island. The audits could lead to criminal charges or fines over the stores' hiring practices. The action appears to open a new front in Trump's sharp expansion of immigration enforcement, which has already brought a 40 percent increase in deportation arrests and plans to spend billions of dollars on a border wall with Mexico. Hardliners have been pressing for a tougher stance on employers.

Raid 711, but whatever you do, don't raid Tyson foods or the hundreds of other similar companies that actually hire most of the illegals. Because, ya know, they are members of the agricultural lobbies (which supports both parties).

'Stopping illegal immigration' is a joke designed for stupid people, so they can have something to cry about.
