NYC Council Members, Protestors Shoved by NYPD Officers at Immigrant Activist Rally

NYC Council Members, Protestors Shoved by NYPD Officers at Immigrant Activist Rally NYC councilmen arrested at rally for immigrant rights activist detained by ICE

In a statement, Yow said over the last 12 years, Ragbir's immigration case has undergone extensive judicial review at multiple levels of the country's judicial system. Ragbir was one of those individuals headed in for a routine check-in when he was detained, community members said.

Eighteen people were arrested during the protest, Buzzfeed reported.

Protesters will hold a vigil for Ragbir at 5 p.m. Thursday at Foley Square in New York City. That isn't to say that that's what happened here, but just to say that we know there are some ways in which the NYPD enables ICE to continue raids and targeting undocumented folks. Just past year, Ravi was recognized with the Immigrant Excellence Award by the New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators, given to those who show "deep commitment to the enhancement of their community".

"Ravi Ragbir means everything to this city", said New Sanctuary Coalition Co-Chair Rev. Kaji Dousa. "A longtime New Yorker, a husband and a father, Ravi is beloved by all of us".

"We were suddenly-many of us suddenly and without warning or provocation shoved and pushed", Johnson said in a meeting following the Council's monthly stated meeting on Thursday afternoon. He had been a lawful permanent resident when he was convicted of wire fraud in 2000.

Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, called for Ragbir's release Thursday. He was placed into removal proceedings in 2006 and then spent 22 months in immigration detention before being released in February 2008.

Both Rodriguez and Williams had been long-time supporters of Ragbir and joined him during an ICE check-in at the same building in May 2017, as reported by Gothamist. ICE justified its decision and said he will remain in custody pending removal to Trinidad.

Officers are seen grabbing Williams, handcuffing him and slamming him onto the front of a auto. He has since exhausted his petitions and appeals through the immigration courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals and the U.S. District Court. "Freedom, resist. We are going to resist".

"The NYPD is definitely not required to collaborate with ICE, and [New York City Mayor Bill] de Blasio has said previously that he would prevent it, as part of being a so-called Sanctuary City".

Ragbir, who is the executive director of the of the interfaith immigrants' rights group New Sanctuary Coalition of NYC, legally immigrated from Trinidad and Tobago more than 25 years ago.
