AbUSed: The Postville RaidFebruary 2, 2011
On Feb 9th, director of “The Silence of Neto,” Luis Argueta, will show and discuss his documentary film “abUSed – The Postville Raid” which tells the story of the most aggressive and largest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in the history of the United States. By weaving together the personal stories of the individuals, the families, and the town directly affected by the events of May 12, 2008, the film presents the human face of the issue of immigration reform and serves as a cautionary tale against abuses of constitutional human rights.
This event is free and open to the general public while integrated into this block’s Ethnic Studies course. For an eight-minute trailer, commentaries and more go to: http://abusedthepostvilleraid.com/ or http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/national/20080711IMMIG.pdf.
