Not Kosher: Former Head of Nation’s Largest Kosher Meat-Packing Plant Arrested on Immigration Charges

Sholom Rubashkin, 49, a powerful member of the Hasidic Jewish community and former head of the kosher plant Agriprocessors, is now in police custody after being arrested for harboring illegal immigrants and aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft. The Rubaskhin family has a long checkered history with the law.

Agriprocessors, the nation’s largest kosher meatpacking plant, is in Postville, Iowa. Rubashkin was arrested in Postville and faces three counts: conspiracy to harbor illegal aliens for profit; aiding and abetting document fraud; and aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft. That could bring ten years and fines of up to $250,000.

His family has often appeared on the criminal blogs in New York, click here.
It would seem a bit of a conflict to be a family that is known both for its deeply religious views and its rather long rap sheet.

  2. Hey Turley Toy: Can you give us a run down on the criminal penalties for Voter Fraud and for Campaign Finance Reform Fraud? I want to know how many years Obama is going to get for voter fraud and for taking tens of millions of dollars from foreigners over the internet using phony names a hundred times on one credit card and/or prepaid credit cards that can’t be traced.

    I am looking forward to 4 years of chasing the SOB obama into the ground on criminal charges.

    OBAMA SAYS TAKE ‘DAY OFF’ WORK FOR ELECTION…
    you will need the whole day off to vote due to Republican voter suppression…

    Mississippi’s voter rolls stuffed with dead and absent registrants… a Red state not in play…so must be Republican stuffing.

    Judge rules Ohio homeless voters may list park benches as addresses… US Supreme Court has ruled homeless people’s homes are where ever homeless people are, guaranteeing homeless people the right to vote. What is your problem with homeless people…

    Effigy of Palin hanging by noose creates uproar.. as it should…

    Obama Campaign Accepting Untraceable Donations… and your proof is where…

    Obama broke promise on campaign finance..spending over $600,000,000… what promise? McCain opted into the public finance system, opted out, and opted back in again…why then is McCain spending way more that $84 million?

    ACORN investigated under RICO Act for Voter Fraud. Wrong! The Republican political driven Bush Justice department is investigating ACORN for Voter registration fraud. By law ACORN must report possible voter registration fraud under HAVA (help Republicans suppress vote Act)

    Biden lowers tax cut claim to under $150,000 a year… don’t care. Bush lowered taxes on the top 2% of US taxpayers to keep them from having to pay for Republican wars…

    Palestinian Hamas Call America for Obama… what do you have against Palestinians?

    LA TIMES suppresses video of Obama toasting terrorist… again, where are your facts.

    Pelosi: Congress ‘will be more bipartisan’ with substantial Dem majorities…! as opposed to 6 years of Republican majority and two years of Republican Senate obstruction…

    Obama’s ‘Redistribution’ Constitution; Courts Poised For Takeover By Judicial Left…
    as opposed to right wing slant under Bush. Really want to revisit Bush V Gore and Roe V Wade?
