#MileHiCrisis

Yes.

We’re still here.

Yes.

YOU SHOULD BE HERE!

Today- we have events at 4pm, 6pm, & 7:30pm outside of the Organizing for America Campaign office (77 9th Ave, Denver- next to La Rumba on 9th & Acoma/Broadway).

Check the event page for updates, photos, and to leave some encouragement to the badass undocumented youth who have passed the 100-hour mark of their hunger strike, calling for President Obama to stop deporting DREAM Act eligible youth!

BRING JONATHAN AND ISAAC HOME →

During the National Immigrant Youth Alliance’s Week of Action, 15 undocumented youth and parents were arrested for standing up for themselves and our community in protest of unjust laws like Alabama’s HB56. 13 of these undocumented youth and parents were released, while 2 undocumented youth were transferred to New Orleans detention center and are awaiting deportation.

Isaac and Jonathan are no different than the 13 undocumented youth and parents who were arrested and released less than 2 days later. Why is President Obama still trying to deport Isaac and Jonathan?

TAKE ACTION - MAKE A CALL:

1. Call DHS – Janet Napolitano (202-282-8495) and ICE – John Morton (202.732.3000) 

Sample Script: ”I am calling to ask that the deportation of my friends Isaac Barrera and Jonathan Perez be immediately stopped. Isaac and Jonathan are DREAM Act eligible. President Obama has said he won’t be deporting undocumented youth and our families. Why are Isaac and Jonathan still detained and awaiting deportation to countries they no longer remember?”

SIGN AND SPREAD

please make a call and sign the petition- they chose to go in to confront ICE and the broken system/promises. They took a stand for the community, now it’s time for the community to take a stand for them. Let’s bring Isaac and Jonathan home!

Tune in NOW!!!

The #NC7 coming out, blocking traffic in a 287g county. They dropped the fear to show other undocumented youth under attack here in NC and across the country that it is time to take action. It is time to come out. It is time to drop the fear!

So much <3

Marco- one badass activist.

Undocumented youth (and good allies in the movement), we’ve got each other’s backs.

I <3 this shot of Marco and Santi :-)

Putting things in perspective and building the bigger picture. I’m glad that Boston.com ran this piece, and that Al Jazeera’s running a bunch of different pieces on global migration right now. Much love to the #peaches :-)

Though, the question does need to be asked: why is it that on this list, you don’t see the recipients of AILA’s Advocacy Award (#imjustsaying)?
