ICE Out of OC: Abolish ICE Rally & March
Thursday, June 14, 2018, 5-8 pm
Morrison Park, 2801 N Westwood Ave, Santa Ana
march to Theo Lacy detention center in Orange
For the last 17 years, in the name of "promoting homeland security and public safety", Immigration Customs Enforcement has been terrorizing the immigrant community by practicing inhuman and unjust actions of tearing families apart, infringing basic constitutional/human rights and physically and mentally abusing detainees. Everyday mothers, fathers, children and their loved ones live in the fear of being separated as a consequence of seeking a better life. Actions must be taken now to end this continuous suffering and torments of immigrant community members by calling for the abolishment of ICE. The incessant infringements of human rights and abuses will not stop until ICE is abolished. ICE must be held accountable for all the inhumane actions they have committed. The march will proceed to the Theo Lacy detention Center in Orange where demands will be presented to the OC board of supervisors to keep ICE completely out of OC and completely shut down Theo Lacy detention center and release all the detainees safely. Organizers will demand nationally the abolishment of ICE and soon post a social media toolkit to explain how to participate regardless of where you are. ICE has only been around for 15 years and it uses .9 billion tax money to separate families and terrorize immigrants. Enough is enough and it's time to correct the mistake of establishing this problematic institution by abolishing it.
