I rallied for Alberto Ramos Gallegos. Why?
I spent two hours on the highway to attend a demonstration in support of an undocumented worker, Alberto, a husband, father of three, and an Ohioan for 24 years. The demonstration was held to highlight the second time Alberto was held in detention this year, then awaiting deportation as a result of a simple traffic stop. His family and his community supporters gathered to protest outside of the Federal Building in Erie, PA and passersby lent their encouragement. Albert’s lawyers and community organizers were inside, arguing in front of a judge and federal agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
