EL XAB, Guatemala — It took Surama Morales five years of plucking feathers, pulling bones from chicken carcasses and washing the birds’ breasts to pay off the $4,200 she borrowed to pay a smuggler to help her cross into the United States. And the very week after she paid off the loan, she was arrested in a federal immigration raid at the Chattanooga Pilgrim’s Pride chicken processing plant and sent back to Guatemala.
