Five years after a federal raid at a New Bedford factory ended in the arrests of hundreds of immigrants, community and immigration advocates marked the anniversary with a public remembrance they hope will bring attention to those apprehended who still face deportation.

“These are individuals whose lives were very much affected by this raid, and they’re still here trying to put back all the pieces of their lives that were broken,’’ said Francisco Ramos, the director of the social justice group, United Interfaith Action.

Participants then marched to locations throughout the city, where some of those detained told stories about their struggle to remain in the United States. The procession, which also drew a small group of protesters, ended at the now-closed factory.

Ramos said the raid dramatically changed daily life for immigrants in New Bedford.

“It forced people and families to live in an invisible situation even more than before,’’ Ramos said. “Many people felt they needed to be more careful of the police department and anything representing authority.’’

Imagine that ! If illegals want a country with no laws head back to Mexico.Stop whinning you got caught breaking the laws from using fake or stolen documents to gain employment and claim, how unfair it is, these laws did what they were suppose to do. 5 years later and still not deported ? What's up with that ?

Why are not these people being deported? It has been long enough since the raid. American citizens must seriously consider intervening as the politicians will not exclude these Third Worlders.
