No employers were arrested even though this company has had previous ICE worker violations.
Eight construction workers were arrested, 1 from Mexico and 7 from Honduras. They were all jailed at the Bay County Jail with a hold for ICE.
In a separate racial profiling incident the same day, the 287(g) Sheriff's Unit also arrested two other men who were going to a separate job site in the Bay County area. The two workers arrested were also from Honduras.
What is sad is, this area was impacted by the hurricanes a few years ago and welcomed in these workers to rebuild their state. As noted by several local commenters, these workers worked hard through the summers, rebuilding their homes and offices. They are wondering why the local Sheriff's office and ICE didn't go after drug dealers and violent criminals instead.
