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.

Omaha World-Herald – Published Saturday May 17, 2008

The NEOC submitted an agreement between the state anti-discrimination agency and Bruning on Friday but was unsure that it would satisfy the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. They won’t call in their “big-gun”, Lincoln attorney, Kathleen Neary who volunteered to help the agency in its dispute with Bruning. I’m sure Jon Bruning lost a lot of sleep over the weekend about this!….Just let the Feds do it all! Other states do……story
