Stop Trump Now! No More Raids, Detentions, and Deportations!
July 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Trump’s relentless attacks on migrants are leading to more abuse, neglect, misery, and deaths. It is time for people to take a stronger stand against this racist repression. The criminalization of migrants and militarization of the border has contributed to thousands of deaths in the past decade. Scores of migrants have died at the hands of the Trump administration. Families continue to be separated. And private migrant prisons are profiting from the government’s cruelty.
Acquiescence in the opening of the Southwest Key child detention center at 419 Emancipation Avenue by most local officials is a bitter reminder that we cannot depend on politicians to end the attacks on migrants. We must recognize that the repression directed against migrants did not begin with the Trump administration. And history teaches us that it will take the power of the masses of people to stop this shameful mistreatment of our brothers and sisters from other countries.
Free Los Ninos Coalition will hold a demonstration against SWK’s child detention center and call for an end to all raids, detentions, and deportions on Thursday, July 4, at 1 pm. This national holiday is the perfect time to point out how the systemic repression of migrants demonstrates that all the official rhetoric about “liberty and justice for all” is a lie. And for those of us who really do want freedom, equality, and real democracy, this is the perfect time to come out and say so as we demand justice for migrants.
Please plan to join us on July 4, at 1 p m, at 419 Emancipation Avenue! For more information, call 832.692.2306.
