We received some wonderful news via Families for Freedom that Jean Montrevil was released from detention and is now safely back at home with his family! Get the details on the Change.org Immigrant Rights blog.

At a rally attended by over a hundred people outside the Varick Street Immigrant Detention Center, eight clergy and two community leaders were arrested after stopping traffic for a half hour to prevent vans from transporting new immigrant detainees to the center.  The participants called for the release of detained immigrant rights leader, and father of four US-born children, Jean Montrevil. They also demanded reform of draconian immigration laws that cause separation of families.
