KEEPING THE PRESSURE ON PRES. OBAMA TO ROLL BACK INHUMANE DETENTION AND DEPORTATION SYSTEM:

As over policing and enforcement of immigrant communities continues unabated (and increasing!) under the Obama Administration, organizers and activists from across New York City are joining a growing national movement demanding real reforms our communities can believe in.  Immigrant rights advocates are employing new, old and retooled tactics to highlight the injustices of the current immigration system and to call for an end to the targeting, locking up and shipping out of our communities.

Join us for a special War on Immigrants Report to hear about how a team of local organizers and family members fought to win the release of Qing Wu, a legal permanent resident who with a decades old criminal conviction was taken into immigration detention after he applied to become a U.S. citizen.  We will also be joined by staff of Seva Immigration Community Advocacy Project who will be highlighting the possible challenges and benefits of immigrant communities being counted in the upcoming U.S. Census.  Finally, we will hear from local organizers working to mobilize New Yorkers to GET ON THE BUS, to join 100,000 immigrants in Washington, D.C. on March 21st for the March for America to demand just and humane immigration reform NOW!
