JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- A U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement official says agents have targeted a manufacturing plant in Laurel.
Temple Black, an ICE spokesman in New Orleans, says "a law enforcement action" was taken at Howard Industries Inc. in Laurel.
Howard Industries Inc. produces dozens of products, ranging from electrical transformers to medical supplies, according to the company's Web site.
A recording at Howard Industries on Monday said the telephone switchboard was closed. A man who answered a phone call from The Associated Press at the company's security station said "no" and hung up when asked if there was anyone available to discuss what had happened.
