FIEL CONDEMNS RAID IN OHIO


[Houston, TX] On Wednesday June 6 2018 in OHIO ICE raided a Gardening Company, through lying and misleading them, arresting more than 114 people. WE CONDEMN these actions as they send a shockwave to our community. FIEL Spokespeople are available for comment.

"We adamantly condemn the actions by ICE in targeting hard working class people. Many people are working in the industries that need migrant workers to fill these positions. By targeting companies and towns that rely heavily on migrant labor for sustenance ICE is not only hurting these migrant families but their towns and their neighbors. We hope that we don’t go back in time to the times where this becomes an everyday occurance in targeting working class people." – Cesar Espinosa Executive Director FIEL
