Former Agriprocessors workers to be deported

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Ten illegal aliens who worked at the former Agriprocessors kosher slaughterhouse will be deported by the end of the month.

The workers, from Mexico, were notified Monday of their deportation when they received the paperwork, the Associated Press reported.

They were arrested and charged in the May 2008 raid on the kosher slaughterhouse and meatpacking plant.

Some 389 illegal workers were arrested in the raid and pleaded guilty several days later.
