Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) made headlines on Tuesday when they arrested 680 illegal immigrants in Mississippi in what was the biggest single-state raid in the history of the United States.

But what didn’t make the headlines was the exploited child labor ring that was busted up during the raid. Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, pointed out this fact in a post on Twitter.

In press conf ICE says they encountered 18 juveniles working at the Mississippi plants raided yesterday, one as young as 14 years old.

Despite the fact that child labor was apparently being exploited at the raid locations, the fake news media and pro-illegal groups used the children of the alleged law-breakers to turn public support against ICE in the aftermath of the raids.

“Government please show some heart,” said 11-year-old Magdalena Gomez Gregoria. “Let my parent be free.”

“I need my dad and mommy,” Gregorio added. “My dad didn’t do anything, he’s not a criminal.”

“We’re now trying to deal with schools because of the children that may be left behind by ICE,” said Bill Chandler, President of the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance.
