Families Belong Together March - Detroit - Melt the ICE

Date: 
Sat, Jun 30, 2018 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

City:

ICE, enabled by Trump and Sessions, have kidnapped over 12,000 children for attempting to enter the country. Many are escaping countries ravaged by violence, only to be ripped from their parents' arms and forced to live in tents and cages.

This attempt at ethnic cleansing must end. Whether by legislative bill, mass direct action or the dissolution of ICE, this racially motivated cruelty cannot be tolerated on our shores.
