Stop Trump Now! No More Raids, Detentions, and Deportations!

July 4, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Houston, TX United States + Google Map

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.

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.

Houston, 77003 United States

We live in a city where asylum seekers are being kept in detention centers, one of which lies just outside Downtown and is housing teenagers indefinitely. These centers are run by the Southwest Key Programs, whose leaders are profiting off of the detainment of children and have yet to share adequate information about the conditions in these centers. We, as Houstonians, are obligated to come together to stand with the migrants in our city and call out maltreatment of migrants when it occurs.

The rally will be held on Saturday September 14, tentatively from 5:30-8:30pm at the Casa Sunzal detention center (419 Emancipation Ave). We will meet at Settegast Park (3000 Garrow St) at 5:30pm and walk for about 5-10 minutes to the detention center.
