Where: Leaving Indian Steel Park, Indian School and 3rd St., Phoenix
When: Saturday, July 28th at 9 am
On Saturday July 28th, Puente Arizona and concerned community members will march to demand dignity and an end to family separation. In light of the recent Supreme Court decision that upheld the racial profiling provision of SB1070, migrant communities and their allies are demanding that President Obama stop the deportation of SB1070’s victims by ending Arizona’s access to federal deportation program Secure Communities.
Carlos Garcia of the Puente Human Rights Movement says, “Every day, our families are torn apart because ICE collaborates with SB1070 and Arpaio and we are not going to stand for it any longer. President Obama has the power to stop the human rights crisis in Arizona in its tracks. We march on July 28th to show him that our communities are stronger than hate.”
