WESTLAKE, La. (AP) – Federal officials say a search of Dunham Price’s Westlake and Vinton plants by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents netted 127 undocumented workers all of them male from Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras.
Authorities have not said what prompted the raid. Dunham Price is a cement and concrete products plant.
The workers were taken to a federal facility in Oakdale and were turned over to the Executive Office of Immigration Review. They will be tried in an administrative court, which will decide whether they should be deported.
