The INS is conducting mass raids of immigrants at LAX and in other locations

around the Southland, sowing panic and terror among thousands of people.

Eyewitnesses report that there is clearly racial profiling involved, and that

people are being chased, endangered and injured. People being taken away can

include both undocumented immigrants and permanent legal residents who are

not carrying their green card on them, or who have past convictions.

This Thursday, the immigrant community and all people for justice will

respond with a

rally (and press conference) beginning at 11AM at the Los Angeles

International Airport, at the Encounters Restaurant building, followed by a

march. The goal is for many hundreds of people to attend, and a large

coalition of immigrant rights groups, trade unions, and faith based and other

social justice groups are mobilizing on an emergency basis for this important

protest. Just a few of the organizations involved include: CHIRLA,

Metropolitan Alliance, KIWA, the Garment Workers Center, the Interfaith

Coalition, HERE, SEIU Local 1877 (Justice for Janitors) , CARECEN, Hermandad,

MALDEF, and many, many others. Your presence is needed too!

Stay tuned for updates between now and Thursday, including CHIRLA' s press

release. For more info: CHIRLA 213-353-1333

Note: Permits are being sought for this demonstration; there will not be

civil disobedience at this event. Arrests at the airport are federal.

Immigration Raids:

--Destroy Families

--Sow Panic in the Population

-- Target hardworking people who contribute to the economy and the community

--Are punitive, inhumane and discriminatory--they violate basic civil rights,

civil liberties and human rights

--Are politically motivated

--Do not change basic migration patterns
