Ripple effect continues five years after immigration raid on Iowa plant

 | 

Carrying red flowers representing the 389 workers arrested during a 2008 raid, hundreds of people participated in a Walk for Justice and interfaith prayer service to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the immigration raid on the Agriprocessors Plant in Postville.

The event continues to have an impact far beyond the small town in a rural corner of the Dubuque archdiocese.
