Criminal charges for the boss at Postville

I've written earlier here about the May immigration raid at Agriprocessors in Postville, Iowa in which hundreds of undocumented immigrants were arrested and then themselves "processed" through a makeshift court at the National Cattle Congress in Waterloo, Iowa. Now, word comes in this story of the arrest of the CEO of Agriprocessors, Inc., Sholom Rubashkin, for "harboring illegal immigrants" and abetting aggravated identity theft. Rubashkin has been released on $1 million bail. The story provides quite a bit of detail of Rubashkin's alleged actions, including his role in helping to secure illegal identification documents after Agriprocessors had reason to believe it would be raided by immigration authorities.
