Local Group Joins National Deportation Protest

IIRT LogoThe Immigration Information Response Team of Lincoln County will join the nationwide movement against deportations by participating in a street demonstration at noon on Saturday, April 5, at the intersection of Highways 101 and 20 in Newport. The rate of deportation of undocumented immigrants is at a record high, with an average of 1,100 people deported daily from the US, the great majority of whom have committed no crime more serious than a traffic violation. By April, two million people will have been deported by the Obama Administration’s Secure Communities policy.

Amid Congressional inaction, President Obama and his Administration must understand that our communities cannot continue to wait. Families are being separated, perhaps forever, by these deportations, and we are in fact less secure, since the immigrant community is reluctant to attract the attention of police to report crime and domestic violence. Some 5,100 American-born children of immigrants, separated from their deported parents, are now in foster care. The President can take concrete, bold and necessary actions now to turn back the deportation dragnet.

On Saturday, April 5, the local immigration advocacy group is joining the National Day Laborers’ Network, Dream Activists, and immigrant rights groups in events across the country to say: Two MillionTooMany! Please join us and bring signs. not one more family destroyed, not one more indifferent reaction to suffering, not one more deportation.
