Immigration activists in Vancouver are protesting the arrest of eight migrant workers who they say were picked up by border agents and filmed for a reality TV series during a raid on a construction site on Wednesday.
Construction worker Gord Beck says he was working on a condo complex at Victoria Drive and 20th Avenue when armed border agents arrived in black SUVs.
Beck says they stationed officers at corners to keep people from running, and swept the site, top to bottom looking for undocumented workers.
“I’ve worked with a lot of guys with ankle bracelets and stuff, but I’ve never seen Immigration swamp a site like that,” Beck told CBC News.
