    Correct to all of the above post. But sadly these 30 they bring in will end up being more like 180 because of the turn over they have and if they do not leave they stay her and cause problems. But just maybe the Mayor will get his 86,000 population he wants if Triumph keeps growing. This is not news worthy report on a good/great company relocating to town and bringing like 500 jobs with benefits. But then again they do not want those types of companies to come her and expand as it seems.

    No one in this town ever even heard of MS13 until Triumph opened and started importing cheap labor from across the border. And since MS13 got a foot hold other gangs have started eyeing St Joseph with a thirst for expansion.

    socialfingered you are correct and our local crime has went up since they have came here. I know plenty that do not feel as safe here as we once did. I think they should go and build in Illinois and open there plant there and take all of their rift raft with them and close this plant and sell this plant to one of the more reputable companies.
