Video via @ICIRR: In Chicago, Youth Lead Walkout from #SComm Hearing & Risk Deportation
via DWN member, Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights
Yesterday, DHS attempted to come to Chicago to host a hearing more interested in politics than policy. They arrived claiming to want to fix a program well beyond repair. The Chicago immigrant community unequivocally responded by stating in no uncertain terms the only real solution to the “Secure Communities” problem is to terminate the program. The youth who attended led hundreds at the DHS taskforce meeting in a walk out after calling for taskforce members to resign.
