Immigration Raid In Iowa Meat Packing Plant Nets 390

The biggest single site immigration raid in US history netted 390 in an Iowa meat packing plant.

Cedar Rapids, Ia. – The number of illegal immigrants detained Monday in Postville has risen to 390 in what federal officials now describe as the largest single-site raid of its kind nationwide.

The detainees include 314 men and 76 women, according to figures released this morning by federal authorities. Fifty-six detainees – mostly women with young children – have been released under the supervision of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

My own reaction is that since millions of illegal aliens are within US borders and easy to identify the size of this raid is much too small.

How did a few Ukranians and Israelis get jobs in this plant?

The detainees included 290 who claimed to be Guatemalans, 93 Mexicans, three Israelis and four Ukrainians.

Use of labor that is outside the legal system is a temptation for abusive behavior.

Dummermuth declined to comment about possible charges against managers at Agriprocessors, Inc., citing the ongoing investigation. A federal affidavit released Monday detailed several eyewitness accounts of employee abuse, including one floor manager who allegedly struck a worker with a meat hook.

Will President Obama cut back on immigration law enforcement? Anyone have a good basis for answering that question?

Wasnt this a kosher plant? Maybe thats why the Israelis were there. Will Pres. Obama cut back on immigration law enforcement? Are you kidding? He'll cut back and reach across the aisle to McCain to co-sponsor the next amnesty that we're all gonna have to swallow.

There is so much more to the story easily available on the internet. Moshe Rubaskin, Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the Lubavitchers, Federal Prison, arson in Pennsylvania (see Failed Messiah, below), Secret PETA video tapes, fraudulent kashering, attempted bribery of the police, non-assimilation in America, self-isolation of Jews, Man! The story has everything. Read reviews of Stephen Bloom's book, "Postville", in which he challenges the melting pot ideology of the open borders crowd.

Failed Messiah has blog entry after blog entry on the crookedness of the Rubashkin family (that rules the Lubavitcher sect and controls the meat plant) and how they screw the gentiles and the Jews:

Here is a two-year-old article from the Jewish Daily Forward on the exploitation of third-world workers in Postville:

This is a "clean" interview with Stephen Bloom on his book about Postville and the Lubavitcher invasion:

This is Luke Ford's long unexpurgated interview with Stephen Bloom. Positively scathing and well worth a read.:

Here is a bogus suckup article by the Jewish women's group called "Hadassah" on the wonderful diversity and multiculturalism of Postville (yecchh):

Hallmark did a ditzy show called "The Way Home: Stories of Forgiveness" about the (nonexistent) touching reconciliation of the Postville locals and the third world illegals and Lubavitchers that took over ... It was narrated by Glen Close. Here is a sample of the dreck they spewed:

" In Postville, Iowa, residents were forced to reevaluate their way of life after the local meat packing plant closed, only to be reopened by Hasidic Jews from Brooklyn, N.Y. The Hasidic Jews’ value of a tight-knit community seemed to clash with the openness of many in Postville. The town’s story continued when workers from Mexico and Eastern Europe flocked to Postville to take advantage of the plant’s ample job opportunities, and residents faced further challenges embracing diversity. Gradually the communities came to understand and respect each other’s differences."

Brutal animal slaughter is a way of life at the Lubavitcher Jewish plant in Postville. It is so nasty that many Jews won't even eat the food because it is a violation of Jewish slaughter rules. The slaughter is so brutal that Temple Grandin (her story is worth a read, too!) onddemned the practices several years ago when shown the PETA tape. See:

This is what Stephen Bloom, the author of Postville (see the Luke Ford review above) has to say about the feel-good sales pitch of Hallmark and the MSM are pimping. His thoughts about "Wa" or "harmony" and how the MSM and ethnic groups seeking our replacement and demise are ramming it down our throats are good:

"The [Postville Hallmark] video is an embarrassment. It's contrived. It's an audio-visual Hallmark card. It's cheery, upbeat, positive.

"Ever since Postville has come out, I've been interested in what the Japanese call Wa -- how Japanese society is run. It means harmony. In Japan, Wa is very important. It's rare in Japan for a vote in a corporation or the parliament that is not unanimous. All the differences are aired in private. By the time the public is clued in, everyone is on board, even the most vociferous critics.

"It's most important to live in a harmonious society where disagreement is eliminated. In America, journalism is generally opposed to the Wa. We journalists look at issues and we don't say, 'George Bush is doing a great job.' That is not a news story. We say, 'George Bush is screwing up big time.'

"There seems to be a tremendous attempt by the Jewish community, as prompted by the Hadassah piece, JTA, Forward, and this Hallmark presentation, to say that two different communities can flourish in America today. Postville is an example of that. There's a tremendous sense that readers and viewers need to come away with a feel good response. 'That stuff that Stephen Bloom did is water under the bridge. That was a long time ago. That was terrible. But now there's been forgiveness, reconciliation and harmony.' That's what the [Hallmark] show is all about.

"They make up a story line that when the Gentile head of the slaughter house, Donald Hunt, who's in my book, I call him a Caesar Romero lookalike, died about a year ago. His death brought together the distinct factions in Postville and began to heal the wounds. There's footage of Hunt's funeral and locals as well as Lubavitchers at the funeral. They use that as a point of entry for establishing a premise that things are going along just great.

"The people I talk to in Postville say things are not going along great.

"This latest skirmish is the slaughter house dumping some 30 tons of salt a week into the aquifers of ground water... There seems to be a journalistic mandate to remind everyone that Postville has reached Wa status. That's not what journalists do. Journalists are supposed to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.
