    Feds, DA trade barbs over lack of cooperation in Coal Township raid - By Michael Rubinkam, AP, Sunbury Daily Item, PA
    Les Kauffman, president of Local 5 of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen, said he called ICE about the construction site and was told there wasn’t enough evidence to conduct a raid.

    “They (always) say, ’Give us a call if you see anything that might be suspicious,’” Kauffman said. “Why do we waste our time, then? They at least got to act on tips. It should warrant at least an agent just to go out and inspect the job.”
