Supreme Kosher's Rabbi Moshe Weissmandel weighed in on the massive immigration raid conducted against Agriprocessors in Postville, Iowa Monday.
What did the uber-haredi have to say?
…Rabbi Moses Weissmandel, the top supervising rabbi at Agriprocessors, told JTA Thursday that the government allegations were categorically false. He was addressing claims in an affidavit that the drug methamphetamine was being produced at the site and that rabbinic supervisors had abused plant workers, the bulk of whom are Mexican and Guatemalan.
"I categorically say it's false, it's not true, it's a lie," he said.
Weissmandel did not address claims that the workers were illegal.
"That's not my department," he said.
