Vienen las navidades, y por consecuente, viene más patrullaje y más retenes. También quisieramos advertir que la presencia de agentes de migración suele aumentarse durante el mes de diciembre aprovechándose de que la gente de la comunidad va de viajes. Urgimos mucha precaución en las vías de tránsito, al igual que en los servicios de transporte público, como el Greyhound. Conozca y ejerza sus derechos y manténgase alerta a toda hora, pero no olvide de disfrutar la temporada lo más posible.

The holidays are coming, and as a result, we'll be seeing more patrols and checkpoints. We would also like to warn that the presence of immigration agents tends to increase during the month of December in light of the increase in travel/ We urge utmost caution on the roadways and even on public transportation systems such as the Greyhound. Know and exercise your rights and remain alert at all times, but don't forget to enjoy this season as much as possible!

Este cambio representa un logro para ustedes, las personas que día por día han luchado en contra de esta injusticia. Aplaudámosnos, seguro, pero sin descansar porque aún continúan otras injusticias que hay que detener para crear un mundo mejor.
