Mainstream Iowan: Iowa churches request government bailout for illegal aliens

Excerpted from this post at Mainstream Iowan

Postville Churches Ask For Government Bailout To Support Illegal
Aliens -- Churches Struggling To Sustain From Their Own Funds The
Humanitarian Crisis They Created In Postville For Supporting Illegal
Aliens… Representatives of 20 churches in Postville and Decorah are
asking Gov. Chet Culver, U.S. Sens. Tom Harkin and Chuck Grassley,
Congressmen Tom Latham and Bruce Braley, State Senator-Elect Mary Jo
Wilhelm and state Representative-Elect John Beard to immediately come
to the Postville area in a coordinated visit. In a letter, the
churches say the six-month humanitarian response to needs created by
the May 12th raid on the Agriprocessors Inc. kosher meatpacking plant
has been stretched beyond its sustainable capacity.
