BROOKLYN, Iowa (AP) — Immigration enforcement agents and state criminal investigators on Thursday visited the Iowa dairy farm that employed and housed the man charged with killing college student Mollie Tibbetts.

Agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, and the county sheriff’s office spent two hours at Yarrabee Farms in Brooklyn, Iowa, on Thursday morning. They appeared to be looking around the property and talking to workers.

The article goes on to state the following:

Yarrabee Farms said in a statement that it was cooperating with investigators who had asked to visit the farm. The company confirmed that federal authorities met with employees and owners for two hours, but it said it could provide no additional details due to an ongoing investigation.

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation spokesman Mitch Mortvedt that his agency’s officers were on the scene assisting investigators from the Department of Homeland Security and ICE, who took the lead. Mortvedt said that means the activity was focused on federal law and not the homicide case, which his agency is leading.

  1. Until such time as employers who retain the services of illegal aliens are penalized to the extent outlined in already existing federal law their farms and businesses are nothing more than killing fields. These employers should be held responsible not only for violating federal law, but also they should be mandated to compensate local police, judges, townships and the families of victims for the damage their low cost labor cost law-abiding citizens.

    • Kathleen03, I could not agree more. The problem is precisely as you describe, the associated costs to the community for the employers cheap labor are solely the cause of the employer, not the community. However, it is the community’s responsibility, law enforcement especially, to report all illegal aliens, workers or otherwise, to Immigration authorities.
