Rally to Protect Immigrant Families in MA

  • Massachusetts Statehouse 24 Beacon Street Boston, MA, 02133 United States (map)

Toddlers are being torn from their mothers' arms. Children are being put in cages and warehoused at an old Walmart. Asylum-seekers escaping domestic abuse and gang violence are being turned away. And right in our communities, families are being torn apart every day by overzealous immigration enforcement. It's morally abhorrent.

So what is Massachusetts doing to protect immigrant families? The state Senate passed a budget amendment with 4 basic protections, to stop police from helping round up immigrants and protect civil rights and due process. But the House is doing NOTHING, and Governor Baker has threatened to veto the Senate measure.

We're NOT going to let them get away with this. Meet us on the State House steps at 12:30, and we'll go into the State House together. Bring SMALL signs (8.5x11 or something you can roll up, so you can get through security), but most important, your voice. If the House won't listen, we're going to make ourselves heard!
