Postville Witnesses Soon To Be Deported

Illinois Maya Ministry wishes to express its grief and solidarity with those Postville witnesses that will soon be deported.  Immigrations and Customs Enforcement/Department of Homeland Security has disregarded the State of Iowa's wish to keep all the witnesses in Iowa, and has ordered their deportation on or before March 31, 2010.  With all that these people had suffered, the hope was that they might receive visas, dual citizenship or just more time to prepare for their departure.  Illinois Maya Ministry will certainly try to keep you aware of any future actions or advocacy that might be done on their behalf.
