Tyson Fires Over 1,200 Americans To Hire Illegal Aliens At New Facilities

A new report has revealed that Tyson Foods will be laying off 1,275 American employees and closing down a pork plant in Iowa, while at the same time recruiting thousands of illegal aliens for other factory positions.

The world’s second-largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef and pork has decided to toss Americans aside in favor of illegal aliens. In a Monday announcement, the company revealed that it was shuttering a pork plant in Perry, Iowa — a close-knit small town with just over 8,000 residents that has low crime and a “family atmosphere,” according to BizPacReview. This closure will lead to unemployment for 1,276 workers, including legal immigrants.

Meanwhile, Tyson Foods is allegedly seeking 52,000 illegal aliens to fill factory positions in several other states, including the sanctuary state of New York.

Even worse, the company has decided to allocate $1.5 million per year to fund these illegal aliens’ legal aid. Tyson will also provide them with temporary housing, on-site childcare, transportation, relocation stipends and paid time off for immigration court hearings.

“After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close our Perry, Iowa, pork plant,” a Tyson Foods spokesperson told Fox Business on Tuesday, coldly declaring that closing this plant “emphasizes our focus to optimize the efficiency of our operations to best serve our customers.”

Fox Business further noted that Tyson Foods has been struggling recently, noting: “In 2023, Tyson Foods indicated six chicken processing facilities would close permanently, and more recently, the company added a pair of ‘case ready value-added’ beef plants to the list of closures, according to the company’s first-quarter earnings report. The shuttering of those facilities, which are located across six states, is meant to ‘optimize asset utilization.’”

The employees of Tyson’s Perry plant were shocked by the announcement, as they were given no prior notice of the closure. In an interview with Reuters, Perry Mayor Dirk Cavanaugh spoke out about the devastating effects of the closure, which is scheduled for June 28.


“It’s a big blow to the community,” he told the outlet. “It’s our largest employer in the area. It’s going to be tough to figure out what to do without them.”

In its statement to Fox Business, Tyson Foods noted that the employees of the Perry plant could apply for positions at other locations in Iowa.

“Taking care of our team members is our top priority and we encourage them to apply for other open roles within the company,” the Tyson Foods spokesperson told Fox Business. “We are also working closely with state and local officials to provide additional resources to those who are impacted.”

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) issued a statement in response to the news, explaining that the state was “ready to assist” the laid off employees, especially as there are nearly 60,000 jobs posted on Iowa’s Workforce Development website.

“Tyson employees, the Perry community, and Iowa pork producers will have the full support of the state in the months leading up to the plant closure and after. Iowa Economic Development Authority and Iowa Workforce Development are already engaged. We stand ready to assist impacted employees with new jobs in the area as soon as possible,” Reynolds wrote.

Meanwhile, Americans are calling for a boycott of Tyson Foods over their decision to prioritize illegal aliens, who have broken American laws to come here, over Americans.

One user on X, formerly known as Twitter, shared an image of every brand owned by Tyson Foods while calling for a boycott.

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk also called for a boycott of the company.
