Iowa is a right to work state which means that a person can be fired for any reason, good reason or no reason at all unless they have a contract of employment or are covered by a collective bargaining agreement. You should consulty a lawyer to see if anything more can be done.
You may be eligible for unemployment benefits. His statement raises the possibility that he is discriminating based on national origin. You might try contacting an employment law attorney to discuss the specific details.
