Immigrant Parents and Communities Stand Up to ICE Raids - Demand Fair and Just Immigration Policies

The Bay Area Immigrant Rights Coalition and allies are mobilizing for A Week of Action Against ICE Raids! Monday, Feb 26th to Friday, March 2nd.[English flyer]
See the great article by Tyche Hendrix from yesterday's SF Chronicle. the photo shows Ana Pérez, director of the Central American Resource Center - Chronicle photo by Lea Suzuki.

Since the Immigration raids at the Woodfin Hotel in Emeryville in October, the cold-hearted Swift Raids which rounded up 1300 people right before Christmas, and the earlier ICE visits to some of our SF Schools, parents, workers and immigrant rights activists have been speaking out to stop the raids and repression and for a fair and humane immigration policy.

More - from BAIRC:

More than ever we need a fair and just immigration law that will allow immigrants the ability to reunite and remain with their families.

Recent ICE community and workplace raids have been terrorizing the immigrant community and ripping families apart.
