Immigrant Activist Ravi Ragbir Returned to New York in ICE Custody

HeadlineJan 18, 2018

Federal immigration officials agreed Wednesday to move immigrant rights activist Ravi Ragbir to a New York immigration jail from the Krome Detention Center in Florida, where he’s been held since he was detained last week following a check-in with ICE. Ravi Ragbir is executive director of the New Sanctuary Coalition of New York City. His detention sparked a peaceful protest ahead of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend that saw police violently arrest 18 people, including members of the New York City Council. Community members continue to call for Ravi Ragbir’s release. Click here to see our interview about his case, with his wife, immigrant rights attorney Amy Gottlieb, yesterday.
