The Real Sporer: Matt Whitaker - Border Security Hero

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

Never let it be said that immigration enforcement is anything but
alive and well in the Southern District of Iowa. Our US Attorney, Matt
Whitaker followed last December's successful raids at six Swift
Packing facilities in Iowa with indictments of several additional
persons involved in the demand end of the illegal immigrant market.
Large scale use of illegal immigrant labor is not possible without
collusion between management and organized labor. Today's actions,
which involve the indictment of both a Swift human resources manager
and a local Marshalltown labor leader, demonstrate Matt Whitaker's
willingness to expose and disrupt that collusion. Moreover, the
additional indictments show Matt's commitment to fighting the demand
for illegal labor and not just the supply.
