STATE REP 110: Patch provides more insight into Palmares campaign

Wednesday, October 12, 2016
Time: 9:26 AM

The Danbury Patch's Scott Benjamin did a rather interesting piece on the campaign of Republican Emanuela Palmares.

Palmares is challenging long-term incumbent and Deputy House Speaker Bob Godfrey of the 110th District (downtown Danbury) and as someone who recently had the opportunity to question her on a wide range of topics, this piece is worth a read.

I'll post a write-up that will detail my thoughts regarding the VERY interesting dynamics within the race in the 110th 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.
