via @afsc_org: On International Migrants Day, Migrant Families Speak Out & Community Members Rally for Humane Immigration Policy
Newark, NJ – On December 18 International Migrants Day, advocates, immigrant families and community members will speak out and rally at the federal office building in Newark NJ to demand the Obama Administration shift away from deportation policies that separate families. During the first Obama administration, a record 1.4 million immigrants have been deported, a record number higher than any other U.S. president.
“Family speak out” will be moderated by a young woman whose life has been turned upside down by broken immigration policy. Her story can be found at http://www.afsc.org/story/keeping-family-together-nieces-fight-immigration-reform.
