DSA-LA Stands in Solidarity with Immigrant Youth Coalition in their call to Free Claudia Rueda, IYC Organizer
Early this morning, Border Patrol conducted a raid in Boyle Heights kidnapping Claudia Rueda outside her home in Boyle Heights, immigrant rights organizer with the Los Angeles Immigrant Youth Coalition and student at Cal State Los Angeles. Claudia most recently lead a campaign to free her mom, Teresa, from ICE detention after Border Patrol agents similarly kidnapped Teresa from their home.
When the officials showed up this morning, family members knew not to open the door since the agents couldn’t produce a warrant. But they got to Claudia anyway while she was outside moving the family’s car. For several hours her family had no idea where she was.
Claudia Rueda was just transferred to ICE custody in San Diego! Now more than ever its critical to Demand that ICE release immediately to allow her to apply for DACA with USCIS instead of filing notice to appear with the court. Please Direct your call to Field Office Director Greg Archambault at 619-557-6117
