LOS ANGELES — On Thursday, janitors and their supporters marched in downtown Los Angeles to protest Alabama efforts to restrict illegal immigration, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The march was just one of several events planned by Latino and black activists calling for the repeal of HB 56, an Alabama law that would crack down on illegal immigration, the article stated.
According to the article, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) United Service Workers West, which represents mostly Latino immigrant workers, organized the march.
"Our organization, SEIU, is front and center on this issue of immigration," said Vice President David Huerta.
"We need to corral our voices, to stand against what’s happening in Alabama, which right now is creating fear and intimidation of the immigrant community," Huerta added.
