Activists Send Hundreds of Tacos to Conn. Mayor

Posted: Jan 27, 2012


The immigration rights organization Reform Immigration for America delivered 400 tacos to the office of East Haven’s mayor Thursday in protest of the mayor's statement that he would address accusations of anti-Latino bias by eating tacos.

Mayor Joseph Maturo, Jr. has apologized for remarks he made to a TV news reporter after the arrest in Tuesday of four town police officers, who were described by one FBI official as “bullies with badges.”

Maturo has resisted calls to resign by Connecticut’s Latino and Puerto Rican Affairs Commission.
