Whoops, we pulled the wrong file, misread the paperwork, didn't let you get your passport with it's visa, so you sat in jail in the backwoods of Iowa for 5 weeks and a day. So what?
(Crownheights.Info) Yesterdays release of R. Tal Ginter, a Shochet and Menaker in Agriprocessors, prompted great Simcha in the small town of Postville. After 5 weeks and 1 day Tal was released yesterday evening after the Immigration Service admitted a mistake on their behalf and canceled the deportation order.
Jail and INS bureaucracy almost had Tal needlessly sitting in jail for another day, throughout the day the transfer of paperwork between the courts in Chicago to the jail located in a town as remote as Postville.
After delivering the paperwork to the jail authorities, they attempted to delay the release by stating issues with the paperwork even though the judge’s order was clear, but just before 5:00pm as the jail offices close the release order was given and Tal was released.
Baruch Hashem he's free, but when the authorities go on a rampage, they usually get much of it wrong. That's ok because we're going to stop that illegal immigration in the US! If a few Jews get in the way, oh well.
