Solidarity Rally Against Deportation

  • Foley Square 111 Worth Street New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

"New York City families deserve dignity and respect. The President’s recent actions on immigration are tearing our communities apart. Each day, dozens of New Yorkers facing deportation must check-in with ICE Officers at 26 Federal Plaza. When they enter the building, they don’t know if they will be able to see their families again. Now more than ever it is important to show solidarity in the face of policies that threaten our communities...

...We call today for a system that:
* puts an end to the detentions and deportations that shatter immigrant lives and families
* protects the rights of all workers, immigrant and non-immigrant alike
* enshrines our shared values of justice, compassion, kindness and generosity
* gives immigrant communities the Right to Remain with their families, with their communities, in their schools, and in their places of worship."
