Dan Horn writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer:
Immigration agents raided a poultry packaging facility in Fairfield, Ohio, early Tuesday and arrested scores of illegal immigrants who were working there. The raid, one of the largest of its kind this year in Greater Cincinnati, is part of a two-year investigation into the hiring practices at Chicago-based Koch Foods Inc. Immigration officials described Koch Foods as an "egregious violator" of U.S. immigration laws, which means the company is suspected of knowingly hiring undocumented workers.

Now, the Bush administration has a long history of non-enforcement to make up for to even equal the rather dismal record of the Clinton administration. I rather doubt the fines involved here will be much more than a slap on the wrist-and I doubt the US government will really have the will to follow this policy through unless we see some serious shakeups in the US political leadership.
