Christensen Farms, a family-owned pork producer based in Sleepy Eye, Minn., was one of about a dozen businesses raided by federal immigration officers Wednesday for allegedly hiring and mistreating workers suspected of being in the country illegally.

The large-scale operation was led by the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, the investigative arm of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and targeted several agricultural firms in Minnesota and Nebraska accused of exploiting workers for profit, according to an ICE news release.
