“….Can this movement against the crisis at the southern border extend to recognizing the need to demonstrate solidarity with migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East?

Only time will tell.

But unless the movement can be sustained, unless the people of this country can commit to a very long haul, not only will many stolen children never be reunited with their families, but the urgent care needed to counter the catastrophic trauma they have experienced may never be given.

In addition, the necessary and earned amnesty or permanent residency for refugees, especially from Central America, may never be won.

That is why it must be asked at this historic juncture: Can the current crisis on the border unite every sector of the working class to continue to push until victory? That would be a win not just for migrants, but for us all….” Workers World Party

Milwaukee June 28, 2018: Keep Families Together: End Trump’s Immigration Terror

Hosted by LCLAA Milwaukee and Young People’s Resistance Committee

Keep Families Together: End Trumps Immigration Terror

1031 S 9th Street, Walker Square Park, 6 P.M. 

The Trump Administration has been running a terror campaign against immigrants in the United States. Most recently this has meant the separation of children from their families at the border. Join YPRC as we rally and demand:

1. An end to the Trump Administration’s zero-tolerance policy on the imprisonment of immigrants.

2. The right of families to remain united throughout the entire process of petitioning for asylum.

3. For Anselmo Villarreal to step down from his current position as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the Southwest Key Program (SKP) and publicly denounce the separation of children from their families under the current administration’s policy.
