The March 5th DACA deadline is all but gone, with no legislative solution for Dreamers. Or TPS holders. Or DED holders. Meanwhile ICE detention and deportations are ripping families apart. Our legislators are failing our immigrant brothers and sisters.
“Beyond DACA” is a series of actions hosted by local immigrant rights groups THIS WEEK to hold our MN legislators to account for their in/action. Let’s join them in demanding permanent protection for all!
See below for more details on the schedule of events by Immigrant Movement for Justice, Navigate MN, Caile MN, MN Immigrant Movement and others.
BEYOND DACA ACTIONS
We are fighting for our Families!
When: March 5th – March 8th
ICE agents have been unleashed on the streets of our communities and are ripping families apart leaving a path of destruction behind them. US born children and youth are left without papa or mama or both, terrorized, traumatized, scrambling for answers, left alone without a provider, and under the care of friends and relatives.
We are mobilizing for a series of escalating actions to lift up the stories of our families and bring ourselves to the doorsteps of the “key holders” elected officials to hold them accountable for playing politics with the lives of millions immigrants including Dreamers, TPS holders/beneficiaries, DED holders and the larger immigrant community.
We demand of him/her/them taking a stand for a fair, and just legislation that results in permanent status for the millions of brothers and sisters including Dreamers, TPS holders DED holders.
We demand an immediate stop to the practices of arbitrary detention and deportation that are terrorizing and dividing immigrant families and our communities.
