Essential Estrogen: Braley and Latham differences mirror ongoing national immigration debate
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
Braley Demands Tougher Oversight of Agriprocessors, Latham Urges Immigration Reform... Iowa -- in particular the small town of Postville -- is currently at the core of a long-waged public debate on immigration. The federal operation there on May 12, the aftermath of deportations and criminal sentencing, as well as the current silence in relation to the investigation against the employer encompass the multitude of issues surrounding immigration and emotions provoked by such government action. As local residents attempt to work through their own often conflicting viewpoints on both responsibility and reform, they need look no further than two of their own congressmen to see how differently two men can react and respond to the same situation.
