March for Immigrant Families and an End to Deportations
The march will be this Friday, November 20th from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm
Annandale, Virginia: March with us from Arlington, Virginia to the White House in recognition of the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s announcement concerning Immigration Relief (DAPA, DACA extended). With the recent 5th Circuit decision to keep both programs blocked, it is imperative that we demonstrate the urgent need for relief for millions of immigrant families including those with US citizen children, all of whom continue to live in fear of deportation.
Come lend your voices and marching feet to:
1.- Commemorate as a positive action President Obama’s announcement of immigration relief for five million immigrants (DAPA y extended DACA); 2.- Demand that President Obama stop deportations and keep families together; 3.- Demand that the Obama administration appeal to the Supreme Court to overturn the 5th Circuit decision that has kept both programs blocked.
WHEN: Friday, November 20th from 8:30 a.m-12:00 p.m. (Departure at 8:30am)
To cover the march: Marchers will leave from 2100 Clarendon Blvd. Arlington, VA 22201 (Arlington Courthouse Plaza), at 8:30 a.m. We expect to be at the White House at 10:50 a.m. and hold a rally. To see the full route, please click https://goo.gl/maps/Va9p9AkNkBu
