After years of fighting for justice for immigrant families, we are on the verge of achieving real relief. With a do-nothing Congress frittering away legislative reform, President Obama has publically promised to adopt aggressive administrative relief early in September.
The question now is how much for how many. Immigrants have suffered at historic levels under his administration and President Obama needs to go big in order to restore sanity to the lives of families. We believe that we must return to the White House to make one final big push to dramatize exactly how far relief needs to go. President Obama needs to hear that providing work permits to the parents of US citizen children is not enough. Our rallying cry will be: President Obama Stop Deporting Workers, Parents, Children.
On August 28, we will gather at ICE national headquarters at 500 12th St., SW, at 11:30, then march to the White House. Our goal at the White House is to conduct the large act of civil disobedience with hundreds arrestees. Our goal is for these heroes to be cheered on by several thousand more.
If you are interested in participating in civil disobedience please call:
