Postville One Year Later

Last Spring, helicopters and immigration agents arrested nearly 400 undocumented workers at Agriprocessors, a Kosher meatpacking plant in the small town of Postville, Iowa. Stephen Brackett is the pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Postville, he watched the raid unfold and talks with us about the great changes the town has seen since.


After our Postville segment, we received this email from listener and photojournalist Sally Morrow Gomez-

Dear Here and Now...

Thank you for the piece about Postville.  I was in Postville this weekend
working on my master's project in photojournalism from the University of
Missouri.  I shot several images that would support your story.  The town is
truly desolate and still - you can almost feel the weight of this burden on
the entire community.
