“Refugees from Central America are fleeing violence, corruption, and political repression. The US government has had a role in the creation of these conditions. Now nearly 3,000 women, children, and men are travelling through Mexico to the US to seek asylum from the horrors of their home countries.
President Trump has responded with 5,200 troops and has promised up to 15,000 to the border. This will cost $220M of Us tax payer money to force soldiers into law enforcement duty. Trump has approved their violent engagement with these families by saying “consider their rock a rifle.”
The Tucson Anti-War Committee and People’s Defense Initiative stand together with all progressive forces of Tucson to demand:
Troops Off the Border! Asylum for the Caravan!
Tuesday, November 13th at 4:30pm

Solidarity with the Caravan! Refugees are Welcome Here!”
