Date: Feb. 3, 1997


The Nation travels to the meatpacking town of Storm Lake, Iowa, and discovers a new immigrant underclass. Working conditions in the plants are poor, and because most workers are illegal immigrants, they have no legal protection. The government refuses to crack down on poor working conditions or to penalize companies for recruiting illegals. Cooper looks at America's hypocrisy in its treatment of immigrants.
