MOBILIZATION TO BATAVIA DETENTION CENTER
“We Will Not Be Caged, Immigrant Women Speak Out!”
Please join the WCCNY and New York Immigration Coalition on Wednesday, March 28th at 6:30 am at 2013 E Genesee st. Syracuse , as we depart to Batavia Detention Center in Upstate New York. This request to mobilize is URGENT!
Our Upstate brothers and sisters NEED YOU to come with us to support one of our community members who is being targeted for deportation! Please join us to support Arely, a member of our upstate community and a mother of three U.S citizen kids. She was turned over to Border Patrol by the Troopers in 2013 because she and her husband did not have a licence when driving to Ithaca, NY. Despite checking in with ICE for years, recently ICE has changed her phone check in to in person and now her most recent check in scheduled for 9:00 AM on Wednesday, March 28th at Batavia Detention Center.
Please stand with us to protect this fierce advocate and community leader and demand that the detention & deportation machine stop ripping families, mothers and children apart!
What: Rally Outside Batavia Federal Detention Center
