On December 2, 2011, Pomona College fired Carmen, her mother Felipa, and her brother-in-law Rogelio after a meticulous investigation into their work authorization documents. Now, Carmen and the Pomona community are speaking out in a new video.
Pomona is a college, not a greedy corporation. This was not an ICE raid. A federal agency did not prompt this investigation. So why did Pomona check workers' papers now? The firings come in the midst of workers' efforts to form a union – an effort Pomona College has opposed.
