BOSTON, January 25—Forty people joined a picket line here today to protest a Bureau of Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) raid of a union hall in Hartford, Connecticut. Yesterday, immigration cops went into the offices of Local 1199 of the Service Employees International Union and arrested Miriem Kamtengeni, a union employee who is originally from Malawi. In the photo above, Sergio Reyes, a leader of the Boston May Day Coalition, addresses the rally. The protesters picketed the Federal Building here demanding, “Stop the Raids, Stop the Deportations.”
