The Judicial Injustice of Kosher Food Plant Owner Sholom Rubashkin
Breitbart – On June 4, the government is scheduled to respond to petitions for a writ of certiorari in the case of Sholom Rubashkin. It’s a writ that should clearly be granted by the Supreme Court.
In 2008, a kosher Iowa processing plant, Agriprocessors, owned by Rubashkin, found out that it was to be raided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) over its hiring practices. Agriprocessors quickly contacted ICE and tried to work out a cooperative arrangement to move into compliance with employment law. Instead, on May 12, 2008, ICE raided the factory with 600 agents clad in riot gear, plus a Blackhawk helicopter. In October 2008, Rubashkin was arrested for hiring illegals.
