In a statement late Thursday, an ICE spokeswoman said Ragbir had “exhausted” his petitions and appeals and would be deported. “(He) does not have a legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” the statement from spokeswoman Rachael Yong Yow said. “He will remain in custody pending removal to Trinidad.”
I took the photo and asked what the protest was about, and asked about the LED signs, they’re a simple, low-cost, clever design with off the shelf LED strands and a battery pack. Holes are poked through the black cardboard and the LEDs are pushed through, the wires on the back are taped down as well as the battery, lasts for hours and the LEDs can be removed and used for another sign later with a new message. The signs are light (light!) enough to hold with one hand and text message and take photos/videos. Post Christmas the LED strands are cheap and can found at many dollar stores.
