In a December 2008 op-ed in the Des Moines Register, Rep Steve King praised the immigration raid in Postville, calling it a "step in the right direction." King also likened the immigrants to livestock.
Many of my long time readers will remember the numerous articles I posted following the events of Postville's despicable and inhumane ICE Raids where human beings were abused and treated like cattle. These raids, which occurred during George Bush's Republican administration, were intended as a pilot operation to serve as a model for future raids. They were also meant to instill fear among the Latino Immigrant communities.
ICE leaders who testified before Congress said these raids were humane. They LIED. A Video report has been released which documents statements from the local residents of Postville and many of the ICE mistreated workers. As one Postville resident said, "All they wanted was a better life. And instead, all we have left in Postville is DEVASTATION and FEAR!"
