MINNEAPOLIS, MN — A vigil was held in a Minneapolis church, Sunday, in support of the recently fired undocumented immigrants, according to the Star Tribune.
The event was held in response to the firing of thousands of workers as a result of a crack down on undocumented workers by the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, the article stated.
As a result of the immigration audits, nearly 2,000 workers in the Twin Cities alone have lost their jobs, the article noted.
"We are here with families who are losing their jobs," said the Reverend Kevin McDonough, pastor at Incarnation Catholic Church, where the vigil was held.
"I want to pray, especially, for those who are here in solidarity with the people who are losing their jobs," McDonough added.
