They have sharp knives

Federal Immigration cops have raided a Kosher meat processing plant in Postville, Iowa, arresting hundreds of illegal immigrant workers. I don't mean illegal Jewish immigrants. Those arrested are cats here illegally from Mexico and Guatemala and such.

Iowa Governor Chet Culver thinks they ought to be prosecuted, but... Perhaps the "but" has something to do with campaign contributions made by the Rubashkin family, who own the Postville plant to politicians of every stripe.

The old feeder notes that the Rubashkins have also started a similar Kosher kill operation in Gordon, Nebraska. Ostensibly, the idea was to employ Red Indians from the Pine Ridge Reservation. I'm guessing the Native Americans didn't work out as cheap labor** and that the plant in Gordon is operated by unpapered cats from South of the border. Just a guess.
** If Red Indians had been amenable to slavery, why would the New World have had to import slaves from Africa?
