RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Hundreds of workers at a Smithfield Packing Co. plant have quietly left their jobs or stopped showing up for work following a crackdown on illegal immigrants employed at the world's largest hog slaughterhouse. Many have submitted resignation letters and collected pay for unused vacation, while others identified by the company in November as having unverifiable employment documents quit without notice, company spokesman Dennis Pittman said. In all, Pittman said about 300 employees had left the massive plant in Tar Heel on their own as of Monday. "Some of these people had been here seven, eight or nine years. It is certainly a blow to the company," Pittman said. "It's slowing us down some. We've had to work some Saturdays and some overtime. When you have new trainees, it takes some time to get those people caught up."You guys know what this means, right?
Remember all that talk about how "we couldn't possibly deport eleventy jillion illegal aliens?"
Yeah, that was a lie.
