The Corn Beltway Boys: Biggest. Raid. Ever.

Excerpted from this post at The Corn Beltway Boys

The news up here in N.E. Iowa, and actually around all of Iowa the
last several days has been the I.C.E. raid at the Agriprocessors plant
in Postville, Ia. State 29 has been keeping an eye on the whole thing.
He's got excerpts from the Cedar Rapids Gazette from the warrent, and
from what I've read, it looks like that company took FULL advantage of
the illegal workers. See, it's not simply that they are doing jobs
that Americans won't do. It's that they are being treated in a way
that you couldn't treat a legal citizen, because, you know, it's
criminal. They can pay you a low wage under the table, jack up your
rent anytime they want, and force you to buy used cars from them.
