Esta semana tres organizaciones civiles lo forzaron a través de los tribunales a publicar detalles de esa participación, exigiéndole revelar quiénes y cuántos indocumentados sin delitos graves fueron deportados por S-Comm en Los Ángeles, y especificar si hubo alguna “negociación” de por medio. – La Opinion 02.23.2012


Day Laborers Continue Fight Against SCOMM In California

Hundreds marched in downtown Los Angeles, cheap chanting and singing in protest against Se Communities, a federal program that demonstrators say allows law enforcement agencies to unfairly deport undocumented immigrants whether or not they have criminal charges against them. The rally was held by the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) on Wednesday, the third day of its four-day summit, to discuss the future of day laborers and the challenges they face. NDLON consists of 43 organizations aiming to advance the rights of immigrant workers.  – Neon Tommy 02.23.2012
