Major Ice Bust, Mayor: "Dehumanizing"

The Justice Department issued the following statement.

– U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), in partnership with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Mississippi, executed multiple federal criminal search warrants this morning for evidence relating to various federal crimes, as well as administrative search warrants searching for individuals illegally present in the United States, at seven sites across the State of Mississippi, announced Acting Director of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Matthew Albence, Jere Miles, HSI Special Agent in Charge in New Orleans, and Mike Hurst, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi.

“HSI’s worksite enforcement efforts are equally focused on aliens who unlawfully seek work in the U.S. as well as the employers who knowingly hire them,” said HSI New Orleans Special Agent in Charge Miles.

“The execution of federal search warrants today was simply about enforcing the rule of law in our state and throughout our great country. I commend these federal agents, our state and local law enforcement partners, and our federal prosecutors for their professionalism and dedication to ensure that those who violate our laws are held accountable. We are a nation of laws, and we will remain so by continuing to enforce our laws and ensuring that justice is done,” said U.S. Attorney Hurst.

As a result of today’s operation, approximately 680 aliens were detained by HSI special agents. Some are being identified as being eligible for an alternative to detention based on humanitarian reasons. These individuals will be physically returned by HSI to their original place of detention and will still be required to appear before a federal immigration judge who will ultimately determine whether or not they will be deported. Currently, all cases are being handled via administrative law procedures at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Family members of those detained can call ICE’s toll-free detainee locator hotline for information about an individual’s detention location and status, as well as information about the removal process. This hotline operates in English and Spanish. The phone number is 1-888-351-4024.

All of those detained are being interviewed, fingerprinted and photographed by ICE agents, processed for removal from the United States, and transported to an ICE facility in Jena, Louisiana.

This operation is part of multiple ongoing criminal investigations.

while Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba issued a statement criticizing the raids.


The City of Jackson is firmly committed to promoting and securing safe communities. We unflinchingly uphold the canon of human rights for human beings. The ICE raids are both dehumanizing and ineffective as a tactic for protecting citizens from potential harm. These raids will only further alienate communities from law enforcement, disrupt community policing efforts, and cause law enforcement to forfeit credibility and trust among the people they are sworn to protect and serve. I’m calling upon faith institutions in our community to become sanctuaries for our immigrant neighbors and protect them from potential harm. The City of Jackson strongly objects to the Trump administration’s ICE raids

Me thinks the Mayor should really concentrate on the water system, roads and bridges and crime. That should be his only concern, and his main concentration. The good citizens of Jackson can not afford for him to do anything else. The City of Jackson is in no position to being playing politics w/in the national realm.

I live in Canton. A couple of comments. First, If the Feds would start hammering the companies that hire the illegals, these types of operations would not be necessary. Next, it will be interesting to see if Peco receives any sort of penalty. And lastly, Truly, the Canton mayor, said "Canton is a law abiding community". That is interesting when you consider that within the past 2 weeks, a school board member/city employee and a city alderman were either convicted or plead guilty to voter intimidation/fraud.

So a lot of this could be cured by punishing the corporations that hire illegal immigrants. Ive read this article over and over and see no mention of repercussions for the companies who hire illegal immigrants in the place of citizens. If they’re paying people with no SSN there has to be a tax violation at the minimum. It’s sad how people lash out at the immigrants while looking past those that hire them.

Screw you Lumumba, If people are here illegally and not following the rules I have no problems with doing this. They were suppose to return to an immigration court on a certain date and didn't do it. Why don't you concentrate on getting the street people run off along the interstate. Oh and by the way I still haven't caught the guy that broke in our building near Northside. He also stole over 200 pairs of shoes from Hibbets Sports the same night.

To understand the mayor's statements, you must first understand his premise that the border itself is an illegal barrier and that these people have done nothing "illegal" by crossing it. If all of the downtrodden of South America come here in droves it will be just fine as long as he and his class are recognized as the leaders they are. And since the vast majority will be functionally illiterate, uneducated and poor they'll need some leaders to represent their interests...

The Peco Plant on West Fulton Street is not in the city jurisdiction. It and the associated trailer park are in Madison County. I agree with a previous poster that the tax violations by Peco also need to be looked into. With no SS numbers and Peco withholding taxes, where is that money going? Unfortunately his voiced concern for the children, while sounding good, is misplaced. The Feds have effectively reduced the number of crime targets for the citizens of Canton, but remember, we are a city of law and disorder, I mean, order.

Do the workers have stolen SS cards and ID? Does the company pay SS on them? Do they withhold income taxes? Lots of questions.
Sadly, there are a lot of unemployed minorities in Canton who could do these jobs, but they make more money from government benefits. Cut off the government checks, then they have to take these jobs.

People who try to avoid or subvert those rules do so at their own peril everywhere, not just in the U.S. Your poverty or the history of imperialism does not give anybody a pass to ignore the nation's immigration laws which give order and safety to those already here legally and those who want to enter legally.

True story- Have a friend who worked for the State Auditors office (Phil was Auditor) and around 2005-8 can't remember the date they got the records from the State Tax Commission and there were over 100,000 Hispanic tax returns that had not been filed for State Income Taxes. Upon further examination most had had letters returned from the State because they used a P.O. Box which was now closed and of course they can't find the person. Looking closer most of the W-2 forms had listed married with 5 or 6 dependents which allowed for the minimum to be withheld on taxes. I'm just telling you this is just like the problem we have in areas of the Delta where people are claiming other peoples children on their returns. If your not in business you don't understand or see these things going on.

This is from an Inspector General report that made the news in 2013.

IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address....and that was just the top amount. Of the top 10 addresses that received refunds, 4 were in Georgia. You can google the news story.


Since 1996, the IRS has issued what it calls Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to two classes of persons: 1) non-resident aliens who have a tax liability in the United States, and 2) aliens living in the United States who are “not authorized to work in the United States.” The IRS has long known it was giving these numbers to illegal aliens, and thus facilitating their ability to work illegally in the United States.

These numbers were supposed to allow non-citizens to "pay" their taxes owed, but it was soon discovered that there is an industry that helps them receive refunds, Earned Income Credit, Child Tax Credits, and if you read the articles, the IRS doesnt care. But if you have a business, and get picked to be audited, you better have all your business reciepts.

Anonymous said...

The problem with disregarding or undermining the rule of law (as the Jackson mayor suggests should be done) is that it promotes the pernicious idea that all laws are optional. Illegal aliens are here illegally. Those who hire them and do not comply with the law are likewise lawbreakers.

What if all laws were optional for those who would benefit by not complying? For example, what if we could all "opt out" of paying federal income tax? I'm sure the good mayor would not support that because of his financial interest in seeing Jackson get all the taxpayer funding the City needs to survive.

We are a nation of laws, not men. Those like the mayor do serious harm to Jackson, our state and our nation when they advocate breaking the law or protecting those who do so from the consequences of their actions.

Believe it or not, an ABC News station in Indiana broke the refund scam story back in 2012.

ABC station WTHR was approached by a tax preparer and given what they thought would be a scoop, and picked up to go nationally. What they found was that the IRS already knew about it, and didn't want to talk about it. They found some IRS employees who had brought this problem to their supervises attention were actually reprimanded for doing so. This illegal alien refund scam was already big busines oin California.

INDIANAPOLIS - Inside his central Indiana office, a longtime tax consultant sits at his desk, shaking his head in disbelief.

"There is not a doubt in my mind there's huge fraud taking place here," he said, slowly flipping through the pages of a tax return.

The tax preparer does not want you to know his name for fear of reprisal, but he does want you to know about a nationwide problem with a huge price tag.

He came to 13 Investigates to blow the whistle.

"We're talking about a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme here that's taking place and no one is talking about it," he said.

The scheme involves illegal immigrants -- illegal immigrants who are filing tax returns.

The loophole is called the Additional Child Tax Credit. It's a fully-refundable credit of up to $1000 per child, and it's meant to help working families who have children living at home.

But 13 Investigates has found many undocumented workers are claiming the tax credit for kids who live in Mexico – lots of kids in Mexico.

"We've seen sometimes 10 or 12 dependents, most times nieces and nephews, on these tax forms," the whistleblower told Eyewitness News. "The more you put on there, the more you get back."

The whistleblower has thousands of examples, and he brought some of them to 13 Investigates. While identifying information such as names and addresses on the tax returns was redacted, it was still clear that the tax filers had received large tax refunds after claiming additional child tax credits for many dependents.

"Here's a return right here: we've got a $10,3000 refund for nine nieces and nephews," he said, pointing to the words "niece" and "nephew" listed on the tax forms nine separate times.

"We're getting an $11,000 refund on this tax return. There's seven nieces and nephews," he said, pointing to another set of documents. "I can bring out stacks and stacks. It's just so easy it's ridiculous."

20 kids = $30,000

10:33, @10:27 here. Nice try. There are certain jurisdictions in the US who have openly admitted they've e n c o u r a g e d and allowed illegals to vote (Google Maryland city council allows illegal - actually, you'll probably prefer to use the term undocumented, in order to avoid being triggered - immigrants to cast votes). Therefore, through sound reasoning (a process that might benefit you), once can be certain there are certainly ample examples of illegals casting votes. It would border on insanity for someone to believe this isn't happening in the jurisdictions that "don't allow it."

If we have 100% of the democrat presidential hopefuls vowing to give illegals free health care, are you naive enough to believe officials further down in the party aren't also allowing them to vote? Can you honestly say it's not plausible to believe that California (who also has at least one illegal voting jurisdiction) would allow illegal voting?

Try again, but next time, come with a real claim.........

The trade in illegal immigrants is much like the drug trade. American companies are addicted to cheap labor just as the segment of the population that is addicted to drugs.
If you bought/built a house in the last ten years you definitely benefited from illegal immigration.
In fact if the contractor who you used didn't use illegals, you would have bought from his competitor,iiu who did.
In most cases it's not about quality or American made, it's about cost. I digress, I know most don't want to talk about economics.

12:53 Children do not cross the border by themselves, adults bring them for cover and because it is no longer smart (used to be) to leave them behind. Like anyone breaking the law, the adults must be dealt with whether they have children or not. That is everyday law. Who wants to hurt children?

This is in response to "August 8, 2019 at 12:53 PM."

You are right when you suggest Jesus advocated "...suffer the little children to come unto me...." You are right when you suggest churches (read: Christians) are obligated to "love thy neighbor" and/or "return good for evil."
HOWEVER, have you ever read the 13th chapter of Romans??? Here, Jesus plainly advocates that ALL should follow/obey the duly enacted laws of the land. "...render unto Caesar..." is a clear command to respect and FOLLOW/OBEY the law. Christians have that obligation, too.
I can't see where opening churches as sanctuaries to those who are clearly in defiance of the law is a practice we should be endorsing. Can you persuade me otherwise?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
