BY JENS MANUEL KROGSTAD, COURIER STAFF WRITER
POSTVILLE — Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested two Agriprocessors supervisors this morning in Postville on criminal charges, said Bob Teig, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Iowa.
The supervisors will make court appearance later today in District Court in Cedar Rapids. Teig said no further details are yet available.
On May 12, ICE agents raided Agriprocessors and arrested 390 workers on illegal immigration and identity theft charges.
Officials called it the largest single-site raid in history.
