ICE has separated over 1,500 children from their parents.
ICE caused the death of two migrant farmworkers in the San Joaquin Valley, when they sought to escape from ICE slave-catchers. The pair left six children in care of a family member who was later deported.
Since Dec. 7h, 2017, ICE has held MIGUEL ARAUJO hostage in a detention facility near Sacramento. Miguel is a political prisoner of both the US and Mexican governments. Miguel is a [political activist who has denounced both governments. He has organized large demonstrations in defense of our people's rights. He has denounced the corruption and impunity rampant in Mexico. The US government has refused to establish a bond amount so Miguel could fight his case from the outside.
Miguel is the latest person to suffer political persecution and arrest for exercising his first amendment rights in defense of the community. Activists across the US have been targeted for arrest and persecution for stepping up for immigrants.
Join us at this community discussion/forum to discuss these cases and others and to demand freedom for Miguel, Justice for Patricia and for ICE Out of Occupied Territories!
