Iowa Political Alert: Immigration attorney: Expect more raids

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

An Ames-based immigration attorney told a crowd of nearly 100
Hispanics at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Denison that she
expects more immigration raids to follow the historic one earlier this
month in Postville -- and perhaps soon. "It's difficult to predict the
future but it's going to be a long summer," said JoAnn Barten.
Speaking at a forum sponsored by La Prensa, a western Iowa
Spanish-language newspaper, Barten noted that both Democratic
presidential candidates, Sens. Barack Obama, Ill., and Hillary
Clinton, N.Y., are likely to place moratoriums on the sort of raids
that traumatized the Latin community in Postville, where Barten
visited to assist those affected in days after the sweep. "For this
reason, expect more raids," Barten said.
