Immigrant Activists Demonstrate in Postville, IA

About 1500 demonstrators appeared in the streets of Postville, IA, to express their contrasting views on the ICE raids in May at a kosher meat-processing plant. The pro-immigrant group vastly outnumbered the nativists. But the protest had a quirky twist. Some Jewish activists were there also to protest the alleged labor and safety violations of Agriprocessors, the employer of the detained workers. (See NY Times article.)
