Migrant Justice March 10/01/2016

"Stop Violence and Deportations!" Rally, march, and speak-out sponsored by Migrant Justice to protest the detention of farmworker leader Miguel Alcudia.

On September 22, Migrant Justice farmworker leader Miguel Alcudia was leaving a VT dairy farm and his co-worker tipped him off that he was being followed by an unmarked car. When he arrived in the town of Vergennes, VT, undercover agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested him and took him into custody. This is the second Migrant Justice leader detained in recent months. Miguel is currently detained at Strafford County House of Correction in New Hampshire with $21,000 bail.
