President Donald Trump this week commuted the prison sentence of kosher meatpacking executive Sholom Rubashkin, who in 2009 was convicted of 86 fraud charges following the previous year’s immigration raid on his family’s Agriprocessors plant in Postville, Iowa.

Rubashkin had been sentenced to 27 years in prison. At the time of the raid in 2008, Agriprocessors was the largest kosher meat processing company in the country. The 57-year-old father of 10 had served more than eight years of his sentence.
