Bay Area Protests Against ICE Raids

The Bay Area Immigrant Rights Coalition & Deporten a la Migra Coalition invite you to:

A Week of Action Against ICE Raids: Monday, Feb 26th to Friday, March 2nd

Location:  San Francisco Immigration Building (Sansome and Washington Streets in Downtown SF)

Call for Local Community Actions

(Local org’s and groups organizing local events)

Recent ICE community and workplace raids have been terrorizing the immigrant community and ripping families apart.   

We call for an end to all ICE raids and for regional and local authorities to publicly oppose detentions and deportations and ensure the safety of our communities.

More than ever we need a fair and just immigration law that will allow immigrants the ability to reunite and remain with their families.

Detailed Schedule of Activities Forthcoming!

Comments

The last I knew there were legal points of entry to come and go from the USA. Where I live, there are four of them within a 40 minute drive of my house plus an airport. People who come into this country by any other route are entering illegally. People who use false papers to come in are entering illegally. People who do illegal deeds are criminals. Crminals do not deserve to be rewarded.

Pelosi's district is predominately a district of illegal aliens. Before anyone complains who is a citizen, you should go and look at the crime rate in that community. ICE is probably there because a huge number of the people in San Francisco complained. Keep in mind, most of the meth, all of the marijuana, and a lot of the Cocaine is coming up from Mexico now. San Francisco is probably a very dangerous place to live.

This is their right to protest, if they are legally in the U.S., our soldiers have died to protect that right.

However, this sovereign nation has a right to enforce immigration laws. There are groups out there that have vested political reason to protect illegals, and hope for AMNESTY. They see it as a way to increase their voting block.

Sometimes political motives are contrary to the good of the entire country. Just say no to 12
million illegal aliens. We'll keep working on finding and deporting them. The message will get through that we are tired, as a nation, of illegal aliens. We'll continue to build our border protection, and some day we'll regain control. AMNESTY SENDS A SURRENDER MESSAGE!
