ADVISORY: A Reel Progress Screening of abUSed: The Postville Raid

December 7, 2010, 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Luis Argueta, critically acclaimed director of The Silence of Neto, presents abUSed: The Postville Raid, the full-length documentary that tells the story of the most brutal, most expensive, and one of the largest Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE raids in the history of the United States. By weaving together the personal stories of the individuals, the families, and the town directly affected by the events of May 12, 2008, the film presents the human face of the issue of immigration reform and serves as a cautionary tale against abuses of constitutional human rights.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a provocative discussion immediately following the film.

Luis Argueta, Director and Co-Producer, abUsed – The Postville Raid
