POSTVILLE, Iowa— The women could have just packed up a few belongings, gently broken the news to their children they could no longer remain in this country, and gone back to Mexico and Guatemala.

Cruz Rodríguez, 31, thought she would do just that in the days after May 12, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents stormed a kosher meatpacking plant in this small town, arresting her and nearly 400 other undocumented workers.


Rodríguez was among some 40 detainees, almost all women, ICE released with ankle bracelet monitoring devices the day of the raid, so they could care for their children as they waited to see an immigration judge. As the weeks and months wore on, many opted for deportation once courts gave them the chance, returning to rural villages in Guatemala and Mexico some thought they’d left behind for good.


Twenty-eight of the women, however, including Rodríguez, remain in Postville, fighting deportation by applying for political asylum or special visas, according to the Hispanic Ministry at St. Bridget’s Catholic Church, nerve-center of immigrants’ organizing efforts.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cruz “Maricruz” Rodríguez sent a personal message to ICE via video. To see the video visit New American Media website at: http://news.newamericamedia.org/news/view_article.html?article_id=cd86ca5f95c0fa93f3dbe 228de3a49da

Solution: Cut off the tax exempt status of the "church" and deport the breeders . . . NOW

Pitch 'em out----------had Rodriguez et al applied for political asylum in the beginning prior to attempting to work; things may have gone better for their cause.

Yes, churches like this should be required to pay taxes. They are involving themselves in politics and encouraging people to break the laws of this country.
