Expecting Couple is Split Up by US Immigration OfficersSan Francisco Bay Area 23 Dec 2005 19:08 GMT
December 22nd: Last Thursday at 7 in the morning, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents busted into the SF apartment of two Young Workers United members. The couple was excitedly preparing for the birth of their first child. It appears that the woman’s former employers called the Immigration. Her employer had been paying far below the legal minimum wage and ultimately fired the young woman for speaking out and organizing against these abuses and being pregnant. The young man was taken away and flown that night to a detention center in Eloy, Arizona.
