It ain’t over till the fat lady sings in Postville!

Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation & State Patrol serve search warrant on Agriprocessors yesterday

The Iowa attorney general’s office had the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation (DCI) along with the Iowa State Patrol serve a search warrant at the Agriprocessors Inc. plant in Postville. This Kosher processing plant was the site of a huge Immigration raid in May.

The plant has been accused of violating child-labor laws and worker-safety regulations. Earlier this month, the state Division of Labor recommended that the Iowa Attorney General’s Office file charges after 57 cases of child labor law violations at the plant were uncovered.

Apparently, no one was hauled off but they were probably searching for records. Of course, no comment from Agriprocessors.

So far, top executives and the plant’s owners have not yet faced any charges in connection with the raid or alleged child labor violations. Two lower-level supervisors recently pleaded guilty to Immigration charges and we are betting that the Feds are getting close to charging the exec’s and/or owners. Remember, it ain’t over till the fat lady sings! see stories DesMoines Register…..Chicago Tribune

Take down that bird feeder, Fremont and Nebraska citizens!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on July 22, 2008

We got a letter from Maxine the other day. The analogy is absolutely right on . . . Maxine tells it like it is!!!! Take down that bird feeder, Fremont and Nebraska citizens!


I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it is, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.


But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table everywhere!

Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.


After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio.


Soon, the back yard was like it used to be…. quiet, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free meal. Now let’s see……!

Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, and free education and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen.

Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; your child’s 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English.

Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to ‘press one’ to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ‘Old Glory’ are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.


Just our opinion, but maybe it’s time for our federal, state and local governments to take down the bird feeder. If you agree, pass it on; if not, continue cleaning up the poop and paying high taxes the feed the birds!”

Missouri Gov. Blunt Signs Immigration Reform Bill

“A two-year effort to curb illegal immigration in Missouri came to fruition Monday as Gov. Matt Blunt signed legislation designed to catch illegal workers and punish their employers. The bill contains a wide range of new requirements, including mandatory checks on the legal status of all public employees, welfare applicants and criminal suspects whenever they are jailed,” the Kansas City Star reports.

[FAIR’s legal affiliate IRLI, the Immigration Reform Law Institute as well as FAIR activists were involved in making sure that this measure was crafted as well as instrumental in keeping the pressure on to pass it. Kudos to FAIR activists in Missouri for this important victory!]

EDITOR’S NOTE: Just so all you news media types that keep stacking the deck daily for the “open-borders” enthusiast’s within the state, the Chamber of Commerces, liberal educators, so-call faith based organizations, sanctuary cities, unions, contractors and Nebraska meat packers (hope we haven’t left anyone out) think that the majority of the citizens are going to just sit back and let you run this state into the ground, you have another think coming! Similiar legislation will be passed in this state, so all you illegals aliens might just start packing!

Letters/Opinions/Comments – Week of May 18, 2008

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 26, 2008

If you would like to really understand the difference between the argument that illegal aliens do the jobs American citizen workers won’t do vs. American citizen workers can’t afford to take the jobs illegal aliens do….watch this eye-opening video How Union Workers Are Affected By Illegal Immigration [Video] .

Omaha World-Herald – PUBLIC PULSE -May 24, 2008

Ginny Campbell, Omaha responds to Aida Cruz, May 17 letter and asks her where the fairness is in 12 million immigrants invading our country and having a feeling of entitlement to everything we have at no cost to them.

Omaha World-Herald -PUBLIC PULSE -May 23, 2008

Nick R. Bechtel, Fremont…..legal immigration is when someone knocks on the front door and is glad to meet you. Illegal immigration is when someone comes in the back door in the middle of the night, makes himself at home and can’t understand why he is not welcome.

Leonard Hill, Iowa….if you bleeding hearts feel so bad for them, then go to their country and help them get a better life. Legal immigrants, yes; illegal immigrants, no.

Omaha World-Herald – Public Pulse – Saturday May 17, 2008

Aida Cruz, David City….. Why do human beings have to judge? It’s just not fair.

85 sentenced in Postville immigration raid
Associated Press – May 20, 2008 10:44 AM ET

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) – Federal prosecutors say 85 people arrested in last week’s immigration raid at a meatpacking plant in Postville have been sentenced on federal charges.

They are part of a group of nearly 400 people arrested at the Agriprocessors plant.

They pleaded guilty yesterday in Waterloo. The U.S. attorney’s office says it’s the largest number of defendants to plead guilty and be sentenced in one day.

Officials say 77 pleaded guilty to using false identification to obtain employment. They admitted using the ID of an actual person and were sentenced to five months in prison and face deportation.

Eight others pleaded guilty to using a false ID to obtain employment, but those documents did not belong to an actual person. They were sentenced to five years probation and ordered out of the country.

Raid Could Make Postville A Ghost Town!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 15, 2008

Some sluthing around found an interesting web blog, “The Problem With the Lubavitch”. It seems that the Chabad Lubavitch, a worldwide Jewish organization headquartered in Brooklyn, N.Y. owns the Postville processing plant. The Lubavitch are very quietly anti-Israel and the established Jewish-American community does not recognize them. Without going into a lot of detail, which you can read yourself, they appear to operate with questionable business practices and outright scams to increase their profits. The town of Postville has had a history of conflict around Agriprocessors, Inc, and it’s Postville facility has a history of noncompliance with state and federal regulations related to food safety, pollution and workplace safety.

Swift & Co. union rep guilty of harboring illegal workers
