AbUSed: The Postville Raid

If you have a chance to see this film -- you should.  The Postville Raid on May 12 2008 was a man-made disaster and a travesty of justice.  See my Post on this in 2009  Postville--One Year Later

If the Bush administration was looking for this raid to be the an example of how to do it and a model for more raids, they picked the wrong place.  In another world view, it was the right place for this to happen.  Because this small Iowa town refused to stand for their neighbors being treated this way.

Our immigrations system is still broken and a mess.  But if anything good came out of the tragedy of Postville it was the clear lesson - This is NOT how to fix it.
