Interpreter shares his post-raid experience

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- A federal interpreter who translated at hearings after the raid at the former Agriprocessors plant in Postville is sharing his experience.

Dr. Erik Camayd-Freixas is doing a series of presentations throughout Eastern Iowa this month titled "immigrant rights and American values -- seeing with new eyes".

"Part of what I'm trying to do is get the rest of the country to see, to have the scales fall off their eyes and see with new eyes, because this is really about American Values," said Camayd Freixas.

He'll be speaking Tuesday at the St. Stephen the Witness Catholic Student Center in Cedar Falls, at Mount Mercy College in Cedar Rapids Wednesday at Clarke College in Dubuque on Thursday.
