Members of the North Carolina DREAM Team are demanding Uriel Alberto, 24, of Winston-Salem, be released from police custody. Alberto was arrested after a Wednesday protest at the legislature.
Alberto is a member of El Cambio in Winston-Salem and traveled to Raleigh to protest a Select Committee immigration meeting.
“My name is Uriel Alberto; I am undocumented, unafraid, and unashamed! I refuse to be bullied and intimidated by this committee and choose to empower my community,” Alberto said at the meeting.
