After moving to New York from Guatemala in 2005, Elias Rojas got his first job in the country working in Tom Cat Bakery’s warehouse. In early 2017, an audit from the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement led the bakery to fire Rojas along with dozens of his co-workers for not providing documentation proving their eligibility to work in the U.S.

The firing prompted Rojas and his coworkers to begin a campaign demanding that Tom Cat Bakery change its protections for undocumented workers against ICE. As of this April, the workers will have been fighting for a year.
