Veronica Castro, NPA Immigration Campaign Director, joins undocumented youth and allies in direct action to keep families togetherEn Español abajo

I wake up every day facing the reality that I can be separated from the people I love and instead of waiting for change, I have chosen to fight for it.

Yesterday, I laid down on one of the busiest streets in Chicago, with 11 undocumented immigrants, for a youth-led action. Our group blocked traffic in front of the location where President Obama was scheduled to have a political fundraiser later that evening.

All 12 of us were arrested. Why did we choose to risk arrest? We did it because our families and communities are suffering. Right now, the Obama administration is on track to meet their deportation quota by tearing 400,000 people away from their families every year — that ain’t right.

Will you join me and demand that the President suspend deportations?

— Veronica Castro, NPA Immigration Campaign Director

TELL THE PRESIDENT: SUSPEND DEPORTATIONS

Please issue an Executive Order to suspend deportations today. I understand that Congress is working to pass immigration reform. As they seek reform, I urge you to make sure those seeking a path to citizenship aren’t deported before the pathway opens.

Exige un Alto a la Separación de Familias

05/30/13

Me levanto todos los días enfrentando la realidad de que podría ser separada de la gente a la que amo, y en vez de sentarme a esperar un cambio, he decidido luchar a favor de ese cambio.

Ayer me acosté en una de las calles más transitadas de Chicago, con 11 inmigrantes indocumentados, para una acción dirigida por jóvenes.

Nuestro grupo bloqueó el tráfico frente al lugar donde el Presidente Obama estaba programado a asistir a para un evento de recaudación de fondos más tarde esa noche. Los 12 de nosotros fuimos arrestados.

¿Por qué elegimos arriesgarnos a ser arrestados? Lo hicimos porque nuestras familias y comunidades están sufriendo. En este momento, el gobierno de Obama está en camino de cumplir con su cuota de deportación, al separar a 400.000 personas de sus familias cada año - eso no es correcto.

¿Te unirás a mí para exigirle al Presidente suspender las deportaciones?
- Verónica Castro, Directora de Campaña de Inmigración de NPA

DILE AL PRESIDENTE: SUSPENDA LAS DEPORTACIONES 

Por favor, emita una orden ejecutiva para suspender las deportaciones hoy mismo. Entiendo que el Congreso está trabajando para aprobar una reforma migratoria. Mientras buscan la reforma, le insto a asegurarse de que los que buscan un camino a la ciudadanía no sean deportados antes de la apertura de esa vía.
