WASHINGTON HEIGHTS-INWOOD, NY — Upper Manhattan officials and advocates rallied in front of a Washington Heights school this week to denounce United States Customs and Border Protection for attempting to intimidate community members. The federal agency drummed up panic in the immigrant neighborhood last week when an agent parked his truck on the sidewalk in front of PS 153 on West 169th Street and Broadway. People held up signs at Monday's rally in front of the school reading "we are all immigrants," and "safe families, safe schools." Congressman Adriano Espaillat said that locations such as schools and places of worship should be respected by immigration authorities.
