abUSed documents the May 12, 2008, raid by 900 heavily armed ICE agents of Agriprocessors, Inc., the largest kosher slaughterhouse plant in the country. Agents arrested 389 undocumented workers, handcuffed and chained them, and herded them onto prison buses and took them to the National Cattle Congress - a fairground that the government outfitted as a human detention and processing center. There the workers went through a makeshift judicial assembly line designed to convict them of a felony and deport them. In just 4 days, nearly 300 of these workers were fast-tracked through the US legal system, convicted of criminal charges and sentenced to five months in prison followed by deportation. Individuals were left humiliated, families were torn apart and a community of great diversity was left in ruins.

Michelle Córdova will lead the discussion.
