Immigrant workers are the backbone of the Michigan economy. Industries like agriculture, construction, and manufacturing depend on immigrant labor. Right now, the Immigrant families are not being treated with respect & dignity. They are constantly separated & put in detention. Michigan immigrant families deserve immediate access to Driver’s Licenses and immediate legalization.

Vigil to Abolish ICE in Kent County

Date: 
Wed, Jul 24, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Join us for a vigil to expose ICE violence, to say stop separating families at the border and in Kent County, and to demand that ICE leave Kent County. Everyday we are hearing news about all the atrocities and human rights violations happening to immigrants at the US/Mexican border, which are injustices being perpetrated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. We know that ICE agents are doing harm on a weekly basis here in Kent County, separating families and detaining people for no other reason than they are undocumented or because they are driving without a license.

We are facing a crisis in the United States. Children are dying, not being given the basics of bathing, general hygiene and are traumatized. This is horrific, un-American, and morally wrong, and it is being done by our own federal government.

A coalition of organizations, people and friends are planning a major protest rally regarding the atrocities happening at our Southern board. We must stand up and be the voice of the voiceless and we must express our disgust collectively.
