Madison, MS resident Hector Valdez-Loera, 42, was sentenced to 12 months and one day in federal prison after being convicted of harboring an illegal alien for commercial advantage and private financial gain on Friday.
Chief U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III also called for three years of supervised release after Valdez-Loera completed his sentence in addition to a fine of $79,784.00 to cover administrative costs.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) found out about Valdez-Loera’s criminal activities while hunting for an illegal alien fugitive on April 13, 2017. ERO officials went to a home in Ridgeland, MS where they found two other illegal aliens, and then tracked the illegal they were following to Madison Concrete, the business owned by Valdez-Loera.
When ERO arrived at Madison Concrete, many workers who feared deportation immediately fled into the woods. They were unable to be apprehended, and ERO soon discovered that Valdez-Loera had not checked E-Verify records for his workers. He also hired illegals who either did not have social security cards or used them fraudulently. He also used his own financial information to gain housing for at least two illegals.
Valdez-Loera pled guilty to the charges on May 24, 2019. The state of Mississippi is on ICE’s radar, as they are conducting sweeps through large businesses to make sure illegals are not being harbored by profit-obsessed capitalist firms.
In August, ICE targeted the agriculture industry of the Magnolia State, serving federal search warrants toward businesses believed to employ illegals:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) executed multiple federal criminal search warrants at seven agricultural processing plants across Mississippi Wednesday morning as part of an ongoing HSI worksite enforcement criminal investigation.
In addition to executing federal search warrants and seizing business records pertaining to the ongoing federal criminal investigation, deportation officers with ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in partnership with HSI detained approximately 680 removable aliens who were unlawfully working at the plants.
All the unlawfully present foreign nationals arrested Wednesday are being interviewed by ICE staff to record any potential mitigating humanitarian situations. Based on these interviews, and consideration of their criminality and prior immigration history, ICE is determining on a case-by-case basis based on the totality of the circumstances which individuals will be detained and which persons may be released from custody at present. In all cases, all the illegal aliens encountered as part of this operation are either being placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts, and for those who already received due process and have been ordered removed, processed for removal from the U.S.
The Trump administration has made sure that a strong example is being set that there will be severe penalties for businesses that employ illegal aliens.

Due to Trump’s Immigration Crackdown, Immigrants Flock to Canada Instead of the United States
Trump’s policies are slowly but surely working.
President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown has foreigners flooding to Canada instead of the United States, according to an analysis from Forbes.
Recent data shows that the number of foreigners immigrating to Canada rose a remarkable 26 percent from 2015-2019 while the number of legal immigrants coming into the U.S. fell by 7 percent from fiscal year 2016 and fiscal year 2018. This number is expected to decrease further as Trump continues to enact his agenda, with a potential second term just around the corner.
Meanwhile, Canada is getting ready to open its floodgates for even more immigrants under the far-left rule of chronically blackfaced Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau’s bureaucrats more-or-less boast that the immigrants will be coming in to replace the native population.
“To further ease the challenges of a shrinking labor force and an aging population, our new multi-year immigration levels plan sets out the highest levels of permanent residents that Canada will welcome in recent history,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.
“Canada is benefiting from a diversion of young Indian tech workers from U.S. destinations, largely because of the challenges of obtaining and renewing H-1B visas and finding a reliable route to U.S. permanent residence,” said Peter Rekai, who founded the Toronto-based immigration law firm Rekai LLP.
While there are members of the Trump administration who are pushing for a Canada-style immigration policy, they have not had success with their plotting up to this point. President Trump’s policies on immigration have remained somewhat restrictive.
The recent U.S. Census report implores the country to open the flood gates for many more immigrants, and operatives from Washington D.C. think-tanks are echoing that line.
“Higher international immigration over the next four decades would produce a faster growing, more diverse, and younger population for the United States,” the Census report concluded.
“We desperately need immigration to keep our country growing and prosperous,” according to William Frey, a demographer with the Brookings Institution demographer who writes books on Census data.
“The reason we have a good growth rate in comparison to other developed countries in the world is because we’ve had robust immigration for the last 30 to 40 years,” he added.
Although Wall Street may be thrilled and GDP numbers may look impressive, ordinary Americans continue to suffer at the expense of this “growth” that is ballyhooed by the experts. Bigger corporate profits, helped along by mass immigration, mean lower wages for American workers.
As former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett explained last year, President Trump has shattered economic records because he has ignored the Washington D.C. consensus on how to grow the economy.

Mass immigration would jeopardize the incredible progress made by the Trump economy, despite what the corporate lobbyists may be saying.
