    San Francisco labor leaders denounce federal intimidation of immigrant workers - By John Han, Fog City Journal, CA
    Paulson said SEIU Local 87 workers were told that they no longer had jobs.

    "Not only was there an outrage that janitors were just thrown on the street like yesterday's trash, but when they protested, the ICE agents came out with guns and were intimidating the workers out here," Paulson reported. "The federal government was being used to intimidate the workers' rights to protest their layoffs."

    SEIU Local 87 member Terasita Navarro said she was at the protest last week. She said the ICE agents were "pushing janitors and trying to force us to leave the grounds."
