Jackson Heights father reunites with family following ICE detainment
Jackson Heights resident Alfredo Flores has been reunited with his family after spending nearly a month in ICE detainment.
Assembly candidate Catalina Cruz held a press conference at the Jackson Heights Post Office (78-02 37th Ave.) on Aug. 15 to welcome Flores home and also to push for New York to become a sanctuary state. Cruz read about Flores’ story in the local news and offered her aid to the family.
The assembly candidate and DREAMer was able to connect the family to pro bono legal representation to get Flores released on bond.
