A rally was held in Waterloo, Ia. to show support for the families who were split apart by the ICE raids at a meat processing plant in Postville last week. Almost four hundred individuals were held at the National Cattle Congress in Waterloo.

It was rumored that people were still being held at the site. If so, they heard a huge crowd chanting, “No more raids!” and “ICE go home!” Many carried signs in English and Spanish calling for a halt to los redados (raids).

I shot a video…

and pulled some stills from the video…
