OGLETHORPE University - Screening Last Night
"Last night was an emotional evening for all of us bearing witness to the disaster that is America's national immigration policy." wrote Lawrence Schall, president of Oglethorpe College (shown here with his wife, Betty Londergan and Luis Argueta after the screening of abUSed: The Postville Raid at Oglethorpe's Lupton Auditorium.) " Watching abUSed last night, it was sure hard not to come away thinking that the five million dollars we spent planning, organizing and executing the raid were not well spent, and that number does not even account for the millions of dollars it cost us to in jail hundreds of people for months or the legal fees expended defending the raid," he added.
Among the 70+ people who attended the screening was Beatriz Illescas Putzeys, Guatemala's Consul General in Atlanta, and members of her staff.
