These people need our help. Postville has become a disaster in Iowa much the same way as the flooding in June. It is very sad to see what has become of the town, since the largest employer, Agriprocessors closed down. Immigrant workers drawn here after the raids, never got their last checks. Water and power shut off in many apartment buildings.
