SLIDESHOW: The Immigrants of East Haven

In this week’s Forefront story, Sarah Kate Kramer explores the problematic immigration policies in the New Haven suburb of East Haven. Below, we have photos from the businesses, run by Ecuadorian immigrants, that over the past 20 years have helped reinvigorate commerce along the town’s main commercial strip. Images also show scenes from protests that erupted earlier this year, after East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo made his now-infamous “taco” comment.
