Thank You to The Public

The Public, a Buffalo, New York, alternative newspaper and web site with a circulation of 35,000, published my article about José Coyote Pérez, an immigrant laborer and labor activist in upstate New York, who was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), earlier today.

The article, with the headline “Labor Activist Detained by ICE,” which is a far superior headline to the one that I slapped on it in a rush, appears here: “Labor Activist Detained by ICE.”

At present, it is the lead article on the newspaper’s web site. Please visit it. Please go look at my moment of fame.

Thank you to The Public, the best newspaper in Buffalo, New York, and environs, and editor Geoff Kelly.

When new developments in the case of José Coyote Pérez become available, I will publish them in The Public, if that publication desires.
