Stop carrying out Donald Trump’s deportation agenda! No more separation of families!
What: Rally & march against immigration raids & deportations
When: Wednesday, May 25, 4:30 p.m.
Where: Starts with a rally outside Sen. Klobuchar’s office (1200 S Washington Ave, Minneapolis) to demand a statement against the raids and then march to the Republican Party Headquarters of Minnesota at 2200 East Franklin Avenue, Minneapolis, to say NO to the Trump anti-immigrant agenda.
Who: Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAC)
The Obama administration and immigration officials are planning a new wave of raids in May and June targeting Central American mothers and children. Despite the Obama administration’s statements that it would not prioritize detaining and deporting families and children, these raids continue. We believe that breaking up families and targeting the most vulnerable refugees is cruel and wrong. Many of these women and children will be facing dangerous situations and even death if deported.
We are asking Minnesota’s elected officials, including Senators Klobuchar and Franken, to demand a stop to these raids. The Democrats are failing their immigrant constituency if they allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to pursue Donald Trump’s deportation agenda. We say ‘no more deportations!’
Join us at 4:30pm, Wednesday of March 25th at Sen. Klobuchar’s office to demand a statement against the raids and then march to the Republican Headquaters of Minnesota at 2200 East Franklin Avenue #201, Minneapolis, to say NO to the Trump agenda.
