MS Magazine has a few updates to its summer article about Greed, Sex Slavery, Forced Abortions and Right-Wing Moralists in the Northern Marianas Islands. The islands, with DeLay's former staff as lobbyists and DeLay's active assistance, offered foreign manufacturers a MADE IN USA label while being exempt from US labor and immigration laws. Not to mention the sex slavery businesses and forced abortions supported by the wealthy sweat shop owners.
Looks like the Democratic Congress wants to change that and the Bush administration is unhappy. Read more about it from dengre at Daily Kos.
