Advocates Slam Trump Immigration Policies as Cause Behind Woman's Death

posted by Newsradio WHAM 1180 -


Advocates for immigrant farmworkers are using the death of Selena Hidalgo-Calderon in Sodus to attack the Trump administration's deportation policies.

Carly Fox, with the Worker Justice Center in Rochester, says immigrant women who experience domestic violence won't contact police out of fear they will be deported. She says this is reckless and immoral.

Selena was found dead last month, and her live-in boyfriend, a twice-deported illegal immigrant is in custody on evidence tampering and immigration charges. 

The advocates are also urging passage of state legislation allowing immigrants to get New York State driver licenses.
