Iowa Defense Alliance: Politics + Protesters = Postville absurdity

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

Postville, IA. A small town in Iowa now well known- not for flood or
tornado damage but, according to the May 12, 2008 Des Moines Register,
as the site of "the largest work place raid in Iowa history. "(Now the
"largest workplace immigration raid in U.S. history." DM Sunday
Register, July 27, 2008). Postville with a population estimated to be
2,000 in July of 2006. The home of Agriprocessors Inc. Much
information has been in the news about the raid, strong feelings for
and against what U. S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement did on
that May 12 day and what has happened in the ten weeks following the
raid. Reading accounts in the newspapers and hearing reports on the
radio leaves me with a wide variety of thoughts and emotions.
