In The Thick


Aug 24, 2018

In 2008, ICE agents descended on a small rural town in Iowa for their largest operation in the history of the United States. As a result, the population of Postville was slashed almost in half and its economy collapsed. Maria and Julio talk to Almudena Toral and Ronny Rojas, two of the journalists behind a new documentary from Univision detailing the aftermath of the raid.
