When ICE Officials raided our Company for Illegal Immigrants
I was working in very inhuman conditions but yet I was very happy as I was able to get some savings to be sent back home. I was unemployed in my home country in India and needed money
With the help of an agent in India, I landed in US on Visitor Visa
Thereafter I joined a Job in an office at about one third of salary a Gora would take.
One day, team of Immigration enforcement agents, numbering about 300, raided the office.
