CTNJ: Immigrant community plans capitol rally

CTNJHARTFORD, Conn. — They may live in one of the most progressive states in the nation, but a coalition of immigrants, labor, community, legislative and business allies will be rallying April 29 at the state Capitol to let everyone know they’re “Here to Stay.”

“Here to Stay” is the name of the rally and it’s only the most recent action the immigrant community in Connecticut has taken since Republican President Donald Trump was elected last year.

“The Trump administration’s assault on immigrants cannot be tolerated,” Rep. Juan Candelaria, D-New Haven, said Monday. “If the president doesn’t understand how much immigrants contribute to the make-up of America, then it’s up to us to make him aware. We will continue our efforts until our message gets through.”
