Tom Walsh, Sidney Hollander Arrested at Immigration Rally

JCUA’s director of public policy and advocacy, Tom Walsh, and Sidney Hollander, a JCUA board member, were arrested during an immigration rally outside of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building in Chicago on May 25.

The civil disobedience action took place as JCUA joined with unions and immigrant rights groups from across the city at a rally and press conference at Chicago’s Federal Plaza. They were voicing their strong opposition to Arizona’s newly signed immigration law, known as SB1070.

Following the press conference there was a march to the ICE building where Walsh and Hollander were among 32 individuals arrested for refusing to disperse from federal property.
