Behold the endgame of all Republican policies.

You'd think that since the US Attorneys office wrote a press release about the indictment that just went public this story would be all over the place.

The 0.1% love illegal aliens.

Our current immigration policies solve the same problem that slavery solved: rich people's insatiable need for cheap labor.

Illegal aliens are better than slaves. You can exploit them but shift most of the maintenance costs to the public.

These sad excuses for humans deserve a Black Mirror-esque fate of some sort.

So the real horror of the story is that one of "them" touched the onion I ate with their bare hands.

Even though I was fully expecting this to be going on, it's still kind of shocking how extensive it is. Everyone involved should be put into the prison labor system until they're dead. This is the best, single reason I can think of to have one.
 
2021-11-26 7:03:34 AM  
And hopefully every asshole who's part of this ring gets sentenced to hard labor.... just for the delicious delicious onion flavored irony...

70,000 victims from this one exploitive group alone, and yet Trump set an artificial cap of 50,000 t-visas that could be issued at any time, meaning that if he were still president, most of the victims would have been deported before they ever could give testimony, The program normally had a 100,000 plus t-visas issued at a time, so Trump was letting a lot of criminals go, just so he could deport victims of crimes.

No snark here. I hope these people get some help... I hope every single one of the shiatbag perpetrators get forced into prison sex trade as victims themselves (including the 70 year old woman) and are eventually shived from taint to solar plexus by 3 term lifers that have nothing to lose...

Yes, you're right - it IS time to legalize all immigration.

In 1995, a group of us had dinner at a small Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. We had a particular view of the kitchen that allowed us a view of the lowest rank of the brigade. It was horribly clear that they were enslaved individuals, sans shackles.

This country was built by the enslaved. Its spectacular society is maintained by the enslaved.

Another Government Employee: You do realize this is not a new phenomenon?


Yay, and that's why it's so bad.  It should be a once in a history story, like pre-1865.  But it's current, we are all benefiting from it, and it's wrong.  I try to shop locally, especially for seasonal produce, and this happened in my home state, dammit.  And it's still happening, maybe here, hopefully not, but definitely elsewhere.
 
2021-11-26 8:33:33 AM  
When I worked for Starbucks, we had to very discreetly dispose of an entire shipment of coffee because it had been found out that it was grown by slaves.  The company already knew about the slavery, as it wasn't those farms' first offenses, but the Brazilian government raided some of them and English-language media had picked up on it.

I had a conversation some years ago with a neighbor at my old house. He came over during the Reagan Amnesty and built a successful painting company. But he had cousins that had been tricked into picking crews. Some of those Coyotes were flat evil in how they kept everybody in line.

The laborers should unionize.

"Maria Patricio, a 70-year-old resident of Nicholls, Georgia, for whom the organization is apparently named, is among the defendants in the federal indictment. She's accused of filing fraudulent petitions to bring workers into the United States via the country's H-2A work visa program. Her attorney did not immediately respond to VICE News' request for comment, but court records show she's pleaded not guilty to the charges against her."

This looks like a female-run organization, largely made up of Mexicans and Central Americans resident in the US, both legally and illegally. So, yay?

It's what I call "the communists' hard sell"

Assume both a cake baker at a bakery, and dehoofer at a slaughterhouse, make the same "wage" in a utopian communist system.

Which job would be more desirable assuming pay is the same?

Do this again but insert "dog groomer" and "proctologist". Both get paid the same.

Now insert "CS rep" and "sugar picker".

See what I'm getting at?

Some jobs are awful.

Holding them hostage and forcing them to work at gun point for only a few cents a bucket? That is crazy. You already have them at gun point, why pay them anything?

He's trying to gin up fear of those dirty Messicans and their taco trucks. It would be interesting to see how much the folks buying those onions for distribution knew about what was going on, and whether these individuals owned the farms or simply promised to provide labor to farm owners who didn't look too carefully.

We need to call vermin out by name, as individuals.  Corporate officers who profit from vile practices.  Their neighbors need to know where they got their money.  Potential future victims need to be aware of working for them.  Future employers need to shun them.
 
2021-11-26 10:12:12 AM  
They will probably get nailed harder for the mail fraud and money laundering than for forced labor.

Undocumented workers are better than slaves.  They aren't subject to OSHA, minimum wage laws, taxes, or pretty much any regulations.  If they get killed on the job they end up in the bottom of a hole.  If they get injured they get thrown out of a van in Juarez.

The Republicans like the cheap labor.  The Democrats love the talking points (but won't do a damn thing to actually help them, maybe next term if you keep electing them).

Actually, the opposite.  I want their neighbors to know about them, future employers, the people who sit next to them in church to know about them.

If you google the names, you'll still see some of their hiring sites online.

Illegal aliens are better than slaves. You can exploit them but shift most of the maintenance costs to the public.

It's what I call "the communists' hard sell"

Assume both a cake baker at a bakery, and dehoofer at a slaughterhouse, make the same "wage" in a utopian communist system.

Do this again but insert "dog groomer" and "proctologist". Both get paid the same.

Now insert "CS rep" and "sugar picker".

See what I'm getting at?

Some jobs are awful.


This is a common Republican strawman argument.  No one is arguing for either communism or complete wage eqaulity.  We can have some jobs that pay better than others.  All we want is for the bottom of the job market to not be so damn exploitative of those at the bottom.  Pay them a fair wage that they can live happily on, and not hold them as slaves.  If you can not ponder that without crying communism, you have no soul.

smokewon: Even though I was fully expecting this to be going on, it's still kind of shocking how extensive it is. Everyone involved should be put into the prison labor system until they're dead. This is the best, single reason I can think of to have one.


As long as you build a prison that is also a working onion farm - that sounds fun.  Where there's a whip there's a way, farkers

So, you want to replace the private slave system with a public one?  That was the intent of the 13th Amendment, after all.

Texas Gabe: BolshyGreatYarblocks: Texas Gabe: And they were liberated under Biden's watch.

Way to go Brandon!

A few hundred out of 70,000.  Note that the Feds want the slaves to come forward: they won't go looking for them.

Biden was best buds with racist AF Strom Thurmond; he is no Great Emancipator.

He's a better person than you anyway.


If you lick the boots of those who have power, I suppose that you would think so.

But power and character are often at cross-purposes.  History will judge whether people I consider to be corrupt, ineffective place-holders will have done all they morally and practically can.

It is time for someone to dig into the person's and company's political donations and publicly ask the politicians about their acceptance of the money.
