Melissa Joins Fasters to Call for an End to the City’s Collaboration with ICE

Yesterday, Melissa joined an event to highlight an ongoing fast undertaken by members of Make the Road New York and faith leaders to call for the passage of comprehensive immigration reform and an end to the City’s collaboration with ICE.

Here is a video from the event, where Melissa speaks in Spanish and then in English, regarding ICE’s presence at Rikers Island, Arizona’s immigration law and the historic opportunity we have to change our social and economic policies in the United States.

The fast began on Wednesday and will end tomorrow. It is yet another example of the continued national escalation on the part of immigrant communities to call for comprehensive immigration reform this year.
