Listen: #ICEFreeNYC Rally and Press Conference
Rally held January 8, 2015 at 201 Varick Street, Manhattan, NY
In response to the ongoing raids on noncitizens with criminal convictions and on Central American Refugees, we as a NYC community say NO to RAIDS AND STOP DEPORTATIONS. We will not stand for our communities to be raided by Immigration Customs Enforcement.
The ICE-FREE NYC campaign is comprised of New Yorkers of all backgrounds who want Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) completely out of our city.
We are individuals, families, community members and organizations working for safer neighborhoods and an immigration legacy all New Yorkers can be proud of.
Our education and advocacy work is summed up by these 3 demands:
- Department of Corrections and New York Police Department must end all collaboration with ICE.
- New Yorkers should feel safe in going to any city agency without the threat of deportation.
- NYC should use resources to strengthen New York families, not tear them apart.
