Time: 12:40 PM

Send me an email, I'd like to talk to you.

UPADATE (03.03.06): Thanks those who attended and emailed me. I'm still working on a couple of stories but I'll get the post on the forum online soon.

Don't think I forgot about commenting about last Saturday's forum on illegal immigration (or what I'd like to call hatefest). I'll have a full roundup on the forum soon. We've received so much information on the speakers at the event from various organizations who attended the event. They have a rap sheet on the various speakers that's a mile long and it makes me wonder if all the people who attended the event did their homework (including the public officals who applauded after the speeches).

Anyway, we'll get the everything set so you can watch and judge for yourself.

I was trying this new blogging software out and I deleted my last post by mistake. I'll just comment on the anti-immigration forum later.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
