Swift Employees Arraigned

17 former Cactus Swift plant workers returned to court today to face arraignment. 

One by one an Amarillo federal judge read them their illegal immigration and identity theft charges through an interpreter.
   

All of them pleaded not guilty. 

The group is part of 53 ex-meat packing employees jailed in Randall County and indicted on illegal immigration and identity theft charges.
  

They were arrested along with 141 others in a federal immigration raid at the Cactus Swift plant last month.
