Modern Day Slavery

leave a comment »

Glenn Beck has finally caught on to what I’ve been saying for years. Illegal immigration is modern day slavery encouraged by Democrat and socialist policies.

See here. And here. And here.

Federal immigration agents raided the kosher meat packing plant in May, rounded up 389 illegal immigrants. They found more than 20 underage workers, some as young as 13 years old. Now these young immigrants have been — these young immigrants — have begun to tell investigators about their job. Some say they work shifts of 12 hours or more, wield be razor edge knives and saws to slice freshly killed beef. Some work through the night, sometimes six nights a week.

One Guatemalan named Elmer L. who was 16 when he started working on the plant’s killing floor said he was working 17 hour shifts six days a week. In an affidavit he said he was constantly tired, didn’t have the time to do anything but work and sleep. He said, “I was very, very sad.” Quote, “I felt as though I were a slave.” You felt like you were — you were a slave. “
