I was reading your article titled,

“Iowans keep noticing mysterious buses with ‘Hispanics’ throughout state, witnesses offer reports”

and I guess my questions is why these buses are considered “mysterious”? Could it be just because they carry Hispanics around? In case you didn’t know, all of these immigrant workers are brought here with H2A visas to do farm services like detasseling work that no one else in the country is willing to do because it’s such hard labor. Each and every one of those individuals is brought here legally and you are simply causing unnecessary confusion by racially profiling them without having any clue what their situations are. The lack of professionalism is astonishing. I didn’t know that articles could be published without having any sort of information about the topic you are discussing. This article is despicable and you should be ashamed. Get informed before divulging this type of nonsense.
