[Updated] Rally held for recently detained immigrants

Protestors filled the steps and sidewalk in front of downtown Rochester's Federal Building on Friday for a rally against recent deportation actions taken in the area. A string of speakers and immigrant rights activists from Metro Justice, Worker Justice Center of New York, and other organizations spoke on the importance of farm workers in the state's agriculture industry; how recently enacted federal policies will affect people; and the importance of solidarity among different communities.
