LATHAM, N.Y. — Fifty people picketed in front of the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security office here April 3, protesting moves by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to deport Dominic Ricardo Morgan, a Jamaica
n-born worker living in Utica. Federal agents told him two months ago he is a priority for deportation and he must now check in with ICE every month. Representatives of New Sanctuary Movement, ICE-Free Capital District, the Industrial Workers of the World, the Socialist Workers Party and several churches were part of the protest, which took place while Morgan was inside for a hearing.
Margaret Trowe, Socialist Workers Party candidate for mayor of Albany, joined the action, urging participants to demand amnesty for the millions of workers who lack immigration papers acceptable to the government.
