From Southeast Asian Refugee Action Center:
Sometime in the last few days, the number of people deported under the Obama administration reached 2 million. That's the equivalent of completely deporting the combined populations of Boston, Seattle, and Washington, DC, in just six years. On April 5th, advocates around the country will speak out to say "enough is enough" and "not one more." Check HERE for an event near you.
Top 10 (Million) Reasons We're Fighting Deportation - Send your family portraits!
SEARAC will commemorate this terrible milestone by highlighting not only the two million people who have been deported, but also their families - the (at least) 10 million children, spouses, parents, and siblings who have been traumatized by deportation, or who continue to live in fear of deportation every day. Starting Monday, March 31 through Saturday, April 5, we will feature family portraits on our Tumblr blog of families who have been or could be impacted by deportation, along with their Top (x) reasons for fighting deportation (which could include their children, parents, siblings, and other family and friends). Please let us know if you or anyone you know would like to feature your family on our blog in our collective fight against deportation! #2million2many #not1more
