Activists Say Iowa Immigration Raid Was Meant to Distract

Mshale, Posted: May 25, 2008

MINNEAPOLISMinnesota activists are saying that the raid of a meat packing plant and arrest of 390 undocumented immigrants in Postville, Iowa was a calculated move by the Bush administration, according to Mshale, an African community newspaper. Most of those arrested will be deported after being charged with crimes of identity theft for falsifying documents to obtain employment. Union representative Rafael Espinosa said the raid was used to distract the country from the mortgage collapse and the declining economy. Erika Zurawski of an immigrant rights group said the immigrants are being scapegoated in the election year to cover up the realities of Bushs failure to run the country successfully.
