ICE Raids Lamar County Trailer Plant

 

 

At least a dozen armed Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents raided a trailer manufacturing company in Lamar County Tuesday. An ICE spokesman said the agents were conducting what they called “an enforcement action” at the Load Trail facility in Sumner in support of a criminal investigation. The company has more than 500 workers at the 420,000 square foot plant. One worker said those who could prove they were legal were given a green armband and were told to leave, others were detained. In 2014, Load Trail was fined more than $450,000 for knowingly hiring 179 illegal immigrants.
