Meeting to Launch Effort to Close ICE Essex Detention Center 10/7. 2pm Newark

Equal Rights For All Who Live Here! There is No Such Thing as an “Illegal” Human Being!

All Welcome to an Organizing meeting to Close the ICE Immigrant Detention Center at the Essex County Jail in Newark Saturday, October 7 2 PM 157 Lafayette St. Newark, NJ The Trump regime is stepping up its attacks on immigrants and all workers.

The ending of the DACA program means 800,000 young people will be facing the deportation machinery, some beginning as soon March of next year. This past week Trump’s ICE agents began massive sweeps targeting so called ‘sanctuary “ cities Like Newark.

But what kind of sanctuary city is Newark when we have one of Trump’s immigrant jails right in our community? The Essex County facility, and those like it around the country such as in neighboring Hudson County, are key parts of the machinery Trump needs to carry our plans to deport DACA youth and his broader efforts to ramp up deportations and terrorize all workers. The Essex County facility, and those around the county, need to be shutdown NOW! All are invited to this organizing meeting to strategize on how to close the ICE facility and build a broader fight back to defend immigrants and all workers For more information call Jay Arena at 504-520-9521
