On December 19th the cameras of Telemundo and Univision were at the Adalberto United Methodist Church in Humboldt Park for a press conference led by Pastor Walter “Slim” Coleman. Last month, ICE conducted a raid at the Chicago Pallet Company wherein 34 workers were placed in ICE custody. Coleman and others organized the conference to give an update regarding those who were placed in removal proceedings (deportations). Some of those workers have been deported, taken voluntary departure, or continue to challenge their removal proceedings.
