Documents: Plant owners 'willfully' used ineligible workers

In this Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019 photo, Pastor Hugo Villegas, right, and his son Pablo Villegas, second from right, assist Cade Vowell, left, and his sister Addison Vowell, second from left, unload donated items for the pantry at the Carlisle Crisis Center in Forest, Miss. The center, a ministry of Scott County Baptist Association, says they will need more food items to help out the families affected by the fallout of Wednesday's raid by U.S. immigration officials at poultry plants Koch Foods and PH Foods in neighboring Morton. The raids were part of a large-scale operation targeting owners as well as undocumented employees.
