‘End the deportations,’
say protesters in DC

Speaking is Pilar Molina from Norristown, Pennsylvania, who recounted her victory in winning the release of her husband Israel Resendiz on June 19, after nearly five months of detention.

Supporters of Resendiz organized a vigil, took part in other actions, carried out a letter-writing campaign and publicized a hunger strike by him, his brother and another inmate at the Pike County Correctional Facility.
