Essential Estrogen: CBS details plight of pseudo-detainees in Postville

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

In a segment the network dubbed "Postville Blues," CBS Evening News
(anchored by Forrest Saywer) highlighted the plight of some of some of
the immigrants that remain in the community while wearing immigration
tracking devices. ... The reporting does adequately describe the current
circumstance surrounding the immigrant women and their children as
well as the local churches -- especially St. Bridget's Catholic
Church. Maria Lopez, one of the women wearing the ankle tracking
devices, speaks through a translator to describe how plant workers
were given new documentation for price. It was an arrangement that she
says plant management was aware of and encouraged.
