The situation with immigration in this country is completely out of control. Whether or not you personally believe in people being able to come to this country to seek refuge, I hope you can see that the way the current administrator is handling this situation is extremely harmful. At the end of the day we are all human, and everyone deserves compassion. I can’t stomach the idea of children getting out at the end of the school day and never being picked up because their parents were detained. I can’t stomach people being locked in cages and being denied basic care. “They should’ve come in legally”. THEY ARE HUMAN! You do not know their story and in another life, you could be them. The legal immigration process takes a lot of time, something people seeking refuge may not have.
This fund goes towards bail and helping families affected by the ICE raids. Anything helps.
About this Campaign
The Trump administration has announced a new round of raids and mass arrests of undocumented immigrants. Farm & food workers - the people who nourish us on a daily basis - are especially vulnerable at this time. They claim that the raids will begin Sunday, but many places are already experiencing a spike in ICE arrests. Today, food and farm workers in DC, NYC, FL, and across the country are already experiencing threats from ICE. At the same time, immigration officers in Toronto, Canada, are conducting I.D. checks on the streets of that city.
