Tucson March & Rally for a Sanctuary City



    (Español abajo)

    “On Friday, January 20th, 2017 Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President of the United States. His plans for his first 100 days includes ending DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), deporting millions of undocumented immigrants, building a wall on the border with Mexico, further criminalizing the undocumented, and cutting off Federal funds to sanctuary cities. We will not stand by and watch our brothers and sisters continue to be criminalized and persecuted.

    Join immigrant rights action committee L.U.P.E and the progressive community of Tucson on this National Day of Protest for Immigrants Rights, to rally at the city mayor’s office, where we will deliver a letter demanding the city takes concrete legal measures to defend our immigrant community and declare Tucson a Sanctuary City.

    Defend DACA!
    Legalization not Deportation!
    No Mexico/US Wall!

    This event is in coordination with the Tucson occupy inauguration, national call to action. Their march will begin at 12pm and join our rally by 1pm outside the mayor’s office.

    Este viernes 20 de enero del 2017, Donald Trump será nombrado Presidente de los Estados Unidos. Su agenda para los primeros 100 días incluye eliminar DACA (Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia), deportar millones de indocumentados, construir un muro en la frontera con México, incrementar la criminalización de los indocumentados, y recortarles los fondos federales a las ciudades santuario. No vamos a permitir que continúe la criminalización de nuestras hermanas y hermanos indocumentados.

    Acompaña al comité de acción L.U.P.E y a toda la comunidad progresista de Tucson en este día nacional de protesta por los derechos de los inmigrantes, en una concentración afuera de la oficina del alcalde, para entregarle una carta demandando que la ciudad tome medidas concretas para defender a la comunidad inmigrante y declare Tucson como ciudad santuario.

    ¡Defender DACA!
    ¡Legalización no Deportación!
    ¡No al muro fronterizo con México!

    Este evento es en coordinación con la marcha organizada por Tucson Occupy Inaguration, national call to action. La marcha comenzará a las 12pm y se reunirá con nuestra manifestación afuera de las oficinas del alcalde a las 1pm.
