PBS Frontline/World will broadcast a 15-minute version of the documentary "In the Shadow of the Raid", by directors Greg Brosnan and Jennifer Szymaszek, nationwide on its Tuesday night, May 11 show. See local listings for times.
The documentary details the devastating cross-border economic impact of the United States' largest ever immigration raid, in Postville, Iowa on May 12, 2008. The raid exactly two years ago on the nation's largest Kosher meatpacking plant wrought economic disaster on a Guatemalan village and wrecked the economy of a former Midwestern boom town.
"In the Shadow of the Raid" is the second segment of PBS Frontline/World this Tuesday, following a piece on carbon trading. Please check local listings for times.
