Marcos Baltazar is a board member at Adelante Alabama Worker Center, a workers’ rights activist as part of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, a single father, and a widow, who is strong and humble.
Marcos came to the United States because the difficult economic and social circumstances that led to his wife’s death during the birth of their son. While in the US, Marcos has valiantly fought against wage theft in Alabama, and has won.
Today, Marcos and his son were detained by ICE during a routine check-in, despite Marcos complying with his check-ins, despite the positive contributions that Marcos gives to our communities. Voz calls on our community to stand with Marcos and say #Not1More, not one more member of our community targeted and snatched from their family.
Join us in standing firmly in solidarity with Adelante Alabama, and our national community, as we lift up Marcos and his family. To show your support, please call your local and national representatives and the Gadsden ICE office 256-543-8154 and ask for the release of Marcos and his son.
