When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town Down around San Antone ... the ICE agents are up and about China Grove

A full 40% of the work were either illegal immigrants or had papers out of order.

Yet other than being fired the illegal immigrant folks get to just walk away?

The company doesn't get fined?

I would certainly think that fining the company would put other businesses on notice not to engage in this practice.

Bakery fires 200 after ICE audit
By Jason Buch - Express-News

The firing of 200 employees at a China Grove company last week was the result of a government strategy targeting employers of illegal immigrants.

Lone Star Bakery Inc., which provides baked goods to restaurants and food service operators, laid off 200 of the 500 people it employs at two plants in the town southeast of San Antonio. A company official said an audit conducted last year found that about 200 bakery employees did not have proper documentation to work in the U.S.

Lone Star Bakery was alerted of that Feb. 2 and on Feb. 16 fired the employees, according to the company's attorney.
