Pastor: Stop immigration raids

Stephen P. Brackett, pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church, Postville, Iowa, is among immigration reform advocates who have asked newspapers to call attention to the problem of women and children who they say have been left destitute following a May 12 raid.

The federal government’s raid on Agriprocessors Inc., a meatpacking plant in Postville, led to the detention of illegal immigrants.

Brackett and others said the government must hold companies responsible for hiring illegal immigrants and stop raids that tear families apart.
