Stop Separating Families Rally

March 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Join us for a vigil and rally to demand that ICE not separate families in immigration detention. 

The Trump Administration is pursuing this policy of separating mothers and young children when they are in detention as a way to deter immigrants coming to this country. 

We know of the 7 year old child of a Congolese woman who has been held in Chicago for the past four months, while her mother has been held near San Diego. They had entered the country seeking asylum. The Brazilian mother and child seperated since August 2017. And we know there are countless more.

Faced with relentless public pressure, we expect the Congolese mother and child to be reunited this week. But we need to keep on the pressure for all of these families.

If you object to these cruel, unnecessary policies, please join us this Thursday on Federal Plaza.
