ACTION DENOUNCING ICE

Last week, the Washington Post reported that a leaked memo revealed that ICE has issued enforcement quotas for officers—ignoring earlier pledges to keep enforcement focused only on criminals and abusive employers. This will lead to ICE targeting more hard-working immigrants and their families.

ACCION DENUNCIANDO ICE

La semana pasada, el Washington Post reporto que un memo filtrado mostro que ICE ha establecido cuotas de enforzamiento para sus oficiales – ignorando las promesas que hicieron antes de mantener el enfoque del enforzamiento en los criminales y los empleadores abusivos. Esto llevara a ICE a enfocarse mas en inmigrantes que trabajan duro, y sus familias.

MIRAc, Mujeres en Liderazgo, the Workers Interfaith Network, La Asemblea de Derechos Civiles, Mujeres Levantando Mujeres, fmln-MN, and allies as we are planning for our May 1st International Workers Day March during this critical moment in the immigrant rights movement.  Comprehensive immigration reform is at a make or break point and we are going to be doing everything we can to have the biggest march possible this year in support of 1) Legalization For All and 2) Equal Rights. We feel its important that we stick to a strong message that pushes those in power to be bold in their support of justice and equality as they try to work out the details about what immigration reform will actually look like. Please help spread the word. See you on May 1st! La lucha sigue!

Members of the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Coalition and local decolonization activists took part in the action, which highlighted the hypocrisy of ICE this Thanksgiving season in targeting undocumented immigrants of color through workplace and house raids, while turning a blind eye to the original illegal immigrants–Europeans.

Mas informacion:

May 12, 2008, Postville, IA was home to the now 2nd largest Immigration raid in the U.S. (behind Laurel, Mississippi). Around 390 people were arrested from their worksite, Agroprocessors, Inc. Eight months later, the local faith community is declaring a humanitarian crisis. Hundreds of people are without work, without electricity, facing eviction and dependent on the local food shelf. After passing months in detention centers around the country, many have been deported already, their famlies left to fend for themselves under the vigilance of ICE. Others are being forced to stay on in Iowa, with tracking bracelets on their ankles, until the Agroprocessors trial, which will likely not occur until September, 2009. On December 28th, a Solidarity caravan traveled from Minneapolis to Iowa with vans full of food as a sign of solidarity and support across borders. The aftermath of this raid was harsher than many had imagined. Those that participated in the caravan promised to bear witness to this tragedy as well as continue reaching hands across borders in any way possible. Please come listen to their account and see in what way we can all be involved. Saturday, January 24th at 10:00 am
