Hawley demands answers from Tyson Foods CEO on allegations of illegal migrant child labor

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., sent a letter Tuesday to Tyson Foods CEO Donnie King sounding the alarm on allegations that the company "has actively participated in dangerous and illegal child labor practices."

A recent New York Times report detailed allegations of several distressing cases where migrant children, many of whom arrived at the southern border as unaccompanied minors, suffered severe injuries or died while working illegally in chicken processing plants.

The letter also alleged Tyson is outsourcing unlawful child labor from other subcontractors to "avoid legal liability."
