Immigration Agents Targeting Worthington
February 28, 2008, 7:17 AM
Immigration agents are conducting an enforcement action in Worthington, but officials with the agency say targeted to individuals and not like the roundup more than a year ago of workers at the Swift meatpacking plant.
A spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement says more information will be available after the operation concludes.
ICE arrested 225 individuals during a four-day, six-state investigation that ended on Monday. States involved were Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, New York, Wisconsin, Indiana and Missouri.
A nun at Worthington's St. Mary's Church who works with the Hispanic community says many were nervous to hear that the ICE was active in town again. The agency arrested 230 workers at Swift's Worthington plant in December 2006.
