Immigration Raid Documentary on PBS Frontline Tonight

Tonight, 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.

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.
Here is the trailer for the longer 30-minute version:

Frontline's "Guatemala: A Tale of Two Villages" (pictured), by Brosnan and  Szymaszek, was showcased last year on KobreGuide.
