September 14, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsSeptember 14, 2008 – DENVER, CO – A new documentary produced by a Denver nonprofit offers a provocative look at immigration awareness and reform by focusing on the nation's largest illegal immigration raid on Dec. 12, 2006. That day, over 1,200 people were arrested following raids at six Swift and Co. processing plants across the United States. In Greeley, CO, U.S. Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) gathered employees in the cafeteria where most were detained and handcuffed for hours, denied their civil rights and later bussed to detainment camps.
'Swift Justice' will premier Thursday, Sept. 18, 2008, at 6:00 p.m. on Denver's Auraria Campus at the Starz Film Center located in the Tivoli. The premier will be followed by a reception; a second screening of the documentary will take place at 8:30 p.m.
