    Immigration Officials Refuse To Stop Impersonating OSHA - By Jordan Barab, Confined Space
    Since when are food production companies 'related to national security?' Does the agency fear that an undocumented immigrant may succeed in unleashing the feared weapons chickens of mass destruction? (And speaking of chickens, the federal government would be better putting its money and energy into mother nature's own chicken-borne weapon of mass distruction -- the avian flu.)

    The raid was widely condemned by labor, workplace safety, immigrant rights and public health groups across the country, as well as federal OSHA and North Carolina OSHA.
