ILOCOS NORTE MIGRANT’S MONUMENT. Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos looks up admiringly at the Ilocanos Migrant’s Monument while OFW rights advocate Susan Ople, and POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac beam after the unveiling and blessing held in front of the provincial capitol on December 18, 2015.
