"Se los tragó la migra"

Front page of the January 22, 2002 issue of El Diario, entitled "Se los tragó la migra," or “Immigration swallowed them.” The article, written in Spanish, shows protesters demanding to know the whereabouts of their loved ones, who were detained in the immediate aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks. It notes the particular focus of the FBI and INS on men of Pakistani origin. The protest was organized by DRUM (Desis Rising Up & Moving), a New York-based coalition that agitates for South Asian and Indo-Caribbean workers and families.
