The Real Sporer: Postville: A demand for action from Iowa Republicans

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

As the story of Postville continues to unfold several obvious truths
are now becoming undeniable. Most importantly, illegal immigration is
a social occurrence that directly and immediately affects the state of
Iowa. Last year Marshalltown, this year Postville and who knows what
else. Illegal immigration is bad for the communities where it is
prevalent. At least one third of little Postville's population (less
than 2300) appears to be there illegally. Think of the burdens imposed
on that school district and the taxpayers who fund it. While such
immigration certainly creates new economic opportunities it depresses
far more. The Marshalltown experience proves that reliance on illegals
depresses wages.
