MORE ABOUT THE RAID:
On the morning of Thursday, May 18, Border Patrol went into Boyle Heights community against, knocking on doors to try to locate our member, 22-year-old youth Claudia Rueda, ultimately cornering, arresting and detaining her along with any other community members that crossed their path! This was a very traumatic experience for community members in Boyle Heights. 7 community members were kidnapped in total and 4 of them were deported the same day. Claudia, Felizardo and Sindy continue to fight their cases in order to stay with their families, loved ones and community here in the United States.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
