Rosy Annette Aponte

Rosy Annette Aponte was born in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico, and grew up in Miami since the age of 3. She graduated from Miami-Dade College, Barry University and Whittier Law School.

Immigrant advocacy group forms in New London

New London — Women from the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Peru passed a baby around, cradling and rocking her in their arms as they talked business in a State Street storefront on a recent Tuesday evening.

Marleny Bencosme, Emma Castillo and Lizbeth Polo-Smith are part of a newly formed immigrant advocacy group called Unidos sin Fronteras, or United Without Borders. The weekly meetings are conducted in Spanish and English and include representatives of various organizations that work with the local immigrant population.

The baby, Ariella, belongs to attorney Marcy S. Levine, whose solo law practice in the city includes immigration cases. Levine answers legal questions for the group, serves as its media spokeswoman and is providing a home to Castillo, an applicant for asylum whose husband was detained by agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Other organizations in the city provide services such as legal representation  and educational programs  to the immigrant community. Unidos sin Fronteras is dedicated to outreach and activism.
