AJLPP Applauds same-sex marriage rights victory in California

AJLPP-USA | The Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) joyously joins the LGBT community in celebrating the California Supreme Court decision that overturned the same-sex marriage ban.

According to the news sources, heavily armed squads of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, backed by state and local police, stormed the slaughter house , while two government helicopters hovered overhead. In all, 16 local, state and federal agencies were involved in the raids, which had been prepared for months.

Meawhile, Juan Jose Gutierrez of the April 7 Coalition and Latino Movement-_USA announced the formation of rapid deployment legal teams composed of lawyers to help immigrants on ICE raids.

Most of those 400 arrested were immigrants from either Mexico or Guatemala, while some others were immigrants from Israel and Ukraine. The bulk of them ( 350 out of 400) were charged with Social Security fraud for using false numbers -a supposedly criminal offense that results in their forfeiting the contributions deducted from their paychecks or with the civil offense of lacking proper immigration status.
