Take action now:

Tyson Foods hiring suit tossed; will appeal; evidence they harbored illegal aliens

From this:
The poultry workers who alleged that Tyson Foods Inc. conspired to depress wages by hiring illegal aliens plan to fight a federal court decision that tossed their [RICO] lawsuit.

The long-contested court battle over whether Tyson Foods Inc. harbored illegal aliens was dismissed Wednesday with prejudice — so the case can't be filed again — but plaintiffs said the court erred in its 30-page opinion and they would appeal.

This judge's ruling is so ridiculous, I could not imagine it won't be overturned on apeeal.
