Iowa Independent: Latham: Congressional Postville visit will offer firsthand glimpse into national immigration debate

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

U.S. Rep. Tom Latham is hopeful that an upcoming trip by the
Congressional Hispanic Caucus into Postville will allow more people to
witness the aftermath of the May 12 immigration raid in the community,
and allow policy makers to have a better understanding of the human
and economic tolls of such a federal action. "The members of the
Hispanic Caucus will have seen firsthand, number one, the effect of
the meatpacking plant owners and, what appears to be, them knowingly
having illegal people working there," Latham said in an interview with
Iowa Independent. "They will see the impact and the consequences of
that."
