Century of the Common Iowan: One Year After the Immigration Raids

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan

One year ago, the Swift plant in Marshalltown was raided by
immigration agents. The events that day and those that followed have
sent shock waves throughout Marshalltown, the state, and the country.
The most heart wrenching story that I have heard is of the young baby,
who was still nursing, that was left in the care of a local church
after the mother was detained. Unfortunately, the debate on
immigration has become an even hotter and more divisive issue, and the
chances for a common sense solution that gets to the heart of the
issue becomes less likely.
