Defend DACA & TPS! Rally Against Attacks on Immigrants

August 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

IMPORTANT: According to news reports, President Trump is scheduled to be in Trump Tower at the time of this action. If true, there will be a heavy law enforcement presence in the area, including federal law enforcement officers like the Secret Service. This is a permitted event, and we encourage everyone to be mindful of security expectations and care for themselves and everyone else attending.

This August 15th will mark the five year anniversary since DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) started. DACA was won because of the resistance led by immigrant youth across the country to win protection from deportation. With the Trump administration, DACA is under attack. More than 800,000 young people are in danger of losing DACA, due to the lawsuit by Texas Attorney General Paxton.

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) has provided 350,000 immigrants the ability to live free from the threat of deportation and granted them work permits. Now, the program is under attack by Trump and Gen. Kelly. We must rally to defend the program and ensure that all of our communities are protected from deportation. DACA and TPS are both critical to protecting undocumented youth, families and workers from being deported. They are programs that are integral to the survival and well-being of all immigrant communities.

On next Tuesday, August 15th at 5PM, join us for an action near Trump Tower by 52nd Street and 5th Avenue.

To demand the following:

Save DACA and TPS from being dismantled.
Stop the criminalization of all undocumented immigrants.
