Rally to Support Edgar and Eloy: Victims of Workplace Exploitation and Fraud
Expedite Adjudication of U-Visa Supplement for Forced Labor & Worker’s Compensation Fraud Victims
 
National–Edgar Rolando Vazquez-Canto (A#205-503-535) and Eloy Flores Martin del Campo (A# 205-503-445) are currently being held at the Broward Transitional Center in Pompano Beach, FL, where they have been for several months in spite of being victims of crime byWastePro USA for nearly seven years in some cases. ICE visited the criminal and immigration attorneys of these individuals, and despite the victims having cooperated with a potential investigation, testifying to the abuses and fraud that they were victims of, all are currently being detained, and false charges against them have never been dropped, much less investigated.
 
Edgar and Eloy are victims of workplace exploitation and fraud. They were forced to pay middle managers money under the constant threat of deportation. They are victims of wage theft, fraud, forced labor, constant threats of deportation, and exploitation.
 
Join members of the NC Dream Team, as we hold a rally to support Edgar and Eloy:
 
When: Thursday, August 29th, 2013 @ 1:00pm
Where: NC Department of Labor. 4 W Edenton St, Raleigh, NC 27601

Exploited workers should be able to go to the Department of Labor for protection from these abuses. WastePro USA must be stopped!
We urge the Department of Labor to take leadership and expedite the adjudication of U-Visa supplement for Edgar and Eloy for their fair chance to stop their deportations. Release the WastePro workers victims of fraud, exploitation, and forced labor before they are deported like several others before them have.
