National day of action: Liberate ALL Families

June 30, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Liberate All Families

Across the border and here in Massachusetts, immigrant workers are being targeted by ICE and the police, exploited at their jobs, and separated from their children and loved ones. 

At the border, children are being separated from their parents and their own brothers and sisters while corporations and private prisons and jails are profiting off of detention and deportation.

So what is Massachusetts doing to protect immigrant families? The state Senate passed a budget amendment with 4 basic protections, to stop police from helping detain immigrants (287g program) and to protect civil rights and due process. But the House is doing NOTHING, and Governor Baker has threatened to veto the Senate measure.

We need to be loud and clear. Join immigrant workers from across the state as we say NO to detention, No to deportation and No to separating families at the border and here in Massachusetts!

Let us know if your group or organization would like to co-sponsor and support on this action!

Por la frontera y aquí en Massachusetts, los trabajadores inmigrantes son los blancos de la migra y la policía, explotados en sus trabajos y separados de sus hijos y seres queridos.

En la frontera, los niños se separan de sus padres y de sus propios hermanos y hermanas mientras que las corporaciones y los centros de detención y las cárceles privadas se benefician de la detención y la deportación.

Entonces, ¿qué está haciendo Massachusetts para proteger a las familias inmigrantes? El Senado estatal aprobó una enmienda al presupuesto con 4 protecciones básicas, para evitar que la policía ayude a detener a inmigrantes (programa 287g) y para proteger los derechos civiles y el debido proceso. Pero la Casa de Representates no está haciendo NADA, y el gobernador Baker ha amenazado con vetar la medida del Senado.

Necesitamos ser muy claro. ¡Únase a los trabajadores inmigrantes de todo el estado mientras decimos NO a la detención, No a la deportación y No a las familias que se separan en la frontera y aquí en Massachusetts!

¡Avísenos si su grupo u organización desea copatrocinar y apoyar esta acción!
