New York city rights activist Ravi Ragbir, an immigrant recently settled a lawsuit with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He argued in court that he was targeted for deportation because of his outspoken criticism of the organization and the larger immigration system. The rights activist has received a three year reprieve from deportation from winning the case, according to The Intercept news.
The decision takes an important place in a larger legal battle regarding the government’s ability to target specific people because of their political speech. It also confirms First Amendment rights for immigrants, something that must be protected for all.
