via @afsc_org: May 1st NJ Rally to Stop Detention and Deportation and Keep Workers’ Families Together
May 1st Rally: Stop Detention and Deportation and Keep Workers’ Families Together!
A country built on immigration! A State bordering the Statue of Liberty! And still no justice for immigrant workers and their families in N.J.
Mandatory Detention is still a law!
Detention bed quota- Requires ICE to fill every detention bed, tears apart immigrant workers’ families every day. We need a bill that reduces the use of detention drastically, preserves due process and stops the deportation of immigrant workers. We call for an end to detention and deportation.
What: Rally to voice our concerns over immigration detention and deportation, and demand family unity for immigrant workers prior to the passage and within the Senate comprehensive immigration reform proposal.
When: May 1st, 2013 – 11:00 am
Where: 950-970 Broad Street, Newark NJ
