Former College Student Still Fighting

Another immigration case with ties to western Massachusetts. 

A former Hampshire College student's  current status at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention  facility is receiving attention.  

The Pioneer Valley Workers Center, a  community organization, says Eduardo Samaniego was denied bond for his  release last Thursday after more than two months behind bars at the ICE  facility in Lovejoy, Georgia.  

The non-profit group says Samaniego, like  other immigration activists, is being targeted for his work.  

A rally  is being planned at the ICE office in Springfield on Thursday, scheduled  to coincide with a scheduled immigration hearing for Samaniego in  Atlanta.
