Raids won’t solve U.S. immigration problem

KANSAS - The man’s job was to stand, hour after hour, virtually shackled to a chainsaw by a system of overhead pulleys.

In front of him moved an assembly line of freshly bled-out bodies; dead pigs dangling by their feet. The man would muscle the chainsaw into position above his head, splitting each pig in half; pig, after pig, after pig.

His work, observed once in a Midwest packing house, was the first major cut in a long process that would eventually turn the dead pigs into perfectly arranged slices of bacon, round sausages, chunky hams and pork tenderloins — all the products Americans covet at the grocery.
