*BOSTON MAY DAY COALITION HOLDS RALLY TO DEMAND NO CONTINUING RESOLUTION 
IN CONGRESS WITHOUT PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR IMMIGRANTS WITH DACA AND TPS!*

Thursday, Feb. 8th, 5:00 - 7PM Park Street T stop, Boston MA While the 
politicians in Washington seek a bipartisan agreement on a Continuing 
Resolution to fund the federal government, attacks on immigrants 
continue to escalate. The Trump regime has attacked immigration on 
nearly every front. Last September Trump declared an end to the Deferred 
Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). Consequently, 122 Dreamers 
will lose their legal status every day. This January Trump added 
Salvadorans to the list of immigrants who will lose Temporary Protective 
Status (TPS). Furthermore, a pattern is emerging across the country of 
ICE targeting immigration activists for deportation, like Massachusetts 
resident Siham Byah. Over 1 million immigrants covered by DACA and TPS 
now face deportation. We demand that any deal for a Continuing 
Resolution be defeated if it does not include permanent residence for 
all undocumented migrants without concessions to militarism and more 
policing. Politicians in both major parties are complicit in a 
generalized assault on our lives, rights, and living conditions. 
Immigrants are scapegoats for a political consensus that perpetuates 
endless wars abroad while slashing health care, education, privacy 
rights, and the environment at home. Muslims, women, people of color, 
LGBTQ folks, and all working people are under fire. The leading edge of 
this assault is the criminalization and attacks on migrants. Millions of 
youth and decent hard working people are under attack! The powers in 
Washington have no solutions that benefit us as working people. Our only 
choice is to build a fighting movement. Today’s rally is in solidarity 
with the national #OurDream coalition that is coordinating actions 
across the country. Enough is enough! An injury to one is an injury to 
all! Join us. Demand an end to the deportations. Jobs, healthcare, 
education, and human rights for all!
