Velázquez Calls for Release of Ravi Ragbir

Velázquez Calls for Release of Ravi Ragbir
January 11, 2018
Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) issued the following statement regarding news that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has detained Ravi Ragbir: 
                                                  
            “Ravi Ragbir has been a pillar in the immigrant community and a tireless champion for immigrant rights.  His detention is unnecessary and inappropriate. Not only is this father, family man and community activist being needlessly detained, but these actions by ICE are creating profound fear and distrust among immigrants throughout our City. ICE needs to release Mr. Ragbir immediately and I will be personally making this case to ICE’s director in coming days.”
