Associated Press - May 21, 2007

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Police say between 300 and 400 people gathered this evening in northeast Ohio to protest a weekend of immigration raids in Painesville.

Members of the city's large Mexican community complain that agents are bullying them. The director of a local women's organization says agents have been "unrelenting" and aren't just targeting people with deportation orders.

Protesters held banners reading, "We come to work and feed our children."
