Resist Deportations! Save DACA and TPS as the deadline looms!
Permanent residence for all undocumented migrants!
Friday, Jan. 19, 5:00 - 7PM
Park Street T stop, Boston MA
The government in Washington has stepped up attacks on migrants to
levels not seen in years. Trump's attacks on Muslim migrants were only
the beginning. Deportations are accelerating. Over 1 million migrants
covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and
the Temporary Protective Status program (TPS) now face deportation.
Prospects for a bipartisan agreement to protect these folks and prevent
a government shutdown on Friday have faded.
Washington is leading a generalized assault on our lives, rights, and
living conditions. From attacks on healthcare, women, and LGBT folks, to
attacks on our environment and education, to perpetual wars, 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. Enough is enough! An injury to one is an injury to
all! Join us on Friday. Demand an end to the deportations. Jobs,
healthcare, education, and human rights for all!.
