In the biggest raid on a workplace in U.S. history, hundreds of Federal agents swooped down on the Agriprocessors plant in Postville, Iowa, on May 12 to seize some 697 undocumented workers. The immigrant without papers has become the new Other within our borders. The near police-state actions of the Federal government in Iowa resulted in the jailing of some 387 Guatemalan and Mexican workers. At the same time, Postville brought forth resistance to the unjust conditions of immigrant life and labor in this "land of the free."

Come discuss Marxist-Humanist perspective on the latest developments in the immigrant workers' movement
