Families Belong Together & Free: Rally Against Family Separation

Join us at Perseverance Park where we will protest the racist deportations occurring here in Syracuse. Local ICE agents are actively kidnapping and deporting members of our community, and we must challenge this form of violence. We will march three blocks to the unmarked ICE office hidden in downtown Syracuse.

From the border to Syracuse and all over the country, families are being torn apart by a government that criminalizes, detains, and deports them. Recently, the Trump administration escalated its racist attacks on immigrants by separating children from their parents at the border and putting them in cages. After public outcry, their “solution” was to keep families together… in detention centers. Jailing families is not a solution.

This goes beyond Trump. Deportation is part of a system that targets and profits off of immigrants and people of color. Now is the time to be clear: this is about putting an end to criminalization, detention, and deportations in our communities. NO ONE should be kept from the place they choose to call home and the people they choose to call family.

This action will be occurring in tandem with thousands of actions across the United States where people are demanding that ICE be shut down, and that no human being is illegal. You can see some of those actions here: https://act.moveon.org/event/families-belong-together/search/?source=families

EN ESPAÑOL
Únete con nosotros en el Parque Perseverancia donde protestaremos las deportaciones racistas que están ocurriendo en Syracuse. Los agentes locales de ICE están activamente secuestrando y deportando a miembros de nuestra comunidad y debemos de confrontar esta forma de violencia. Marcharemos tres cuadras hacia la oficina de ICE sin marcar, escondida en el centro de Syracuse.

Desde la frontera hasta Syracuse y por todo el país, familias están siendo separadas por un gobierno que las criminaliza, detiene, y deporta. Recientemente la administración de Trump aumentó estos ataques contra las personas inmigrantes al separar a los padres de sus hijos y ponerlos en jaulas en la frontera.
Después de que ésta atrocidad ocasionó un escándalo público, la “solución” del gobierno fue la de mantener a las familias unidas… pero en los centros de detención! Encarcelar a las familias NO es la solución!

Esto va más allá de Trump. La deportación es parte de un sistema que se enriquece de los inmigrantes y de las personas de color. Ahora es el momento de ser claros: esto se trata de poner un alto a la criminalización, detención y deportación en nuestras comunidades. NADIE debe ser apartado del lugar que ellos escogen llamar su casa y de la gente que ellos escogen llamar su familia.

Esta acción sucederá al mismo tiempo que miles de acciones por todo el país donde la gente está exigiendo que se cierre ICE y proclamando que ninguna persona es ilegal.
