The Immigration War: Attacking the Poor, Supporting Their Exploiters

Bill Conroy at Narco News has a good analysis of the recent raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE, the former INS) division of the Department of Homeland Security in the Swift company meat packing plants.

The owners of Swift are very connected to the Bush administration and are not being charged with any violations of labor law or immigration law. Meanwhile, many of the undocumented immigrants arrested were merely taken across state lines and released. It seems to have been mostly a PR stunt.
