Immigration Rally Outside Federal Courthouse In Hartford

Immigrants and their allies, including Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin, rally outside the Hartford Federal Courthouse on Wednesday afternoon in support of the concurrent, massive “DEFEND OUR IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES” mobilization rally in Washington, D.C. In response to the Trump administration’s ongoing attacks on immigrant communities, the rallies demanded that Congress make good on its promises to pass a clean Dream Act and protect Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries before the end of the year. The Hartford rally also supported the immigrants across Connecticut targeted for deportation by the current administration, many of whom had been granted stays of deportation under previous administrations, including New Haven resident Nelson Pinos and Wesleyan janitor Francisco Acosta.
