When: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

The poignant documentary, abUSed: The Postville Raid, presents the devastating effects of U.S. Enforcement Immigration policies on communities, families and children. The film tells the gripping personal stories of the individuals, the families and the town that survived the most brutal, most expensive and largest immigration raid in the history of the United States and serves as a cautionary tale of government abuses.
."Luis Argueta's documentary, abUSed: The Postville Raid, is a poignant illustration of the human fall-out of some U.S. immigration actions. The lives of immigrants-undocumented and documented-and Postville natives will never be the same after the immigration 2008 raid of Agriprocessors, Inc." Susan Berger, Fordham University
. "This film is an important messenger of the truth. It eloquently tells the story of the people of Postville, and their suffering at the hands of a broken immigration system." -- David Leopold, President American Immigration Lawyers of America.
