Day Laborers Rally for TRUST Act at Sheriff Station

A group of day laborers rallied in support of the TRUST Act in East Los Angeles today. The National Day Laborer Organizing Network wants Governor Jerry Brown to sign AB1081, legislation that would require local police agencies to release non-violent, eligible immigrants. The bill has been sitting on his desk since last month. This morning, undocumented workers shared stories about how Secure Communities has unfairly punished them. Pacifica KPFK’s Ernesto Arce was at the LA County Sheriff’s East LA station for the rally. He files this report.
