Jews Demand Open Borders
"Free migration of workers and immigrants"

Minneapolis Star Tribune -- July 28  

Twin Cities Jews join the battle
    Twin Cities Jews say supporting the workers is important because they were mistreated while supplying U.S. Jews with kosher meat. There have been accusations that workers were abused and underpaid.
    "For thousands of years, Jews lived by two rules: Welcome the strangers and don't exploit the worker,'" said Vic Rosenthal, executive director of Jewish Community Action, based in St. Paul.
    "We will settle for nothing less than a path for legalization, family unification, free migration of workers and immigrants, and equal protection for all workers," he told a cheering crowd at St. Bridget's Catholic Church in Postville, which has become a sanctuary for the families of the 400 or so arrested undocumented workers.
