Debrief on Mississippi Raid: Lessons Learned and Improving Responses
Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested approximately 680 people at seven chicken processing plants across Mississippi on Aug. 7, 2019. This was the biggest workplace immigration raid ever carried out in a single state. The Mississippi Center for Justice responded immediately with a local coordinated effort. CLINIC and Lawyers for Good Government Project Corazon partnered to offer pro bono bond representation to victims of the raid. Representatives from these organizations will describe their response efforts to the Mississippi raid and share the lessons learned from responding to ICE's actions and the Executive Office for Immigration Review's processing of the bond motions.
