From I-91, take Exit 6 for Willow Street. At the end of the ramp, turn left on Willow St. At the light, go straight through (Willow becomes Blatchley). You will quickly go up a bridge over the railroad tracks and immediately see the driveway on your left. The driveway is in between the Classic Car Club and the Eviction Warehouse of the City of New Haven. Enter the driveway and go all the way to the end. Bregamos Theater has a wooden ramp leading up to the entrance.
From downtown New Haven take State Street north until Humphrey St. Turn right on Humphrey (which becomes Lombard), turn left on Blatchley, and after crossing Peck Street, enter the driveway on your right hand side immediately before the railroad overpass.
We recommend parking on the street or in the free parking lot at Erector Square on 315 Peck Street.
A federal magistrate judge has ruled that four ULA activists must pay a fine for blocking the entrance of Hartford Immigration Court on February 21, 2013 in a protest against the deportation of Jose Maria Islas.
The protesters argued that if the judge was concerned about public safety, she should be concerned about the hundreds of migrants whose lives are extinguished because of brutal US immigration policies. Greg read aloud the names of all the migrants whose bodies have been found on the border this year.
Megan read aloud a letter written by Jose Maria, who was present in the courtroom. In July this year, he was released from prison and granted a one-year stay of deportation after a year-long protest movement by Unidad Latina en Accion.
