Familias Inmigrantes Marcan el Dia del Padre con Protestas, Otras Acciones a Nivel Nacional

Vigilia local y demostración comunitaria apoyada por testimonios locales tomará lugar en Immokalee

 Para millones de familias inmigrantes, el Dia del Padre es un recordatorio de la separación cruel de sus familias por las manos del sistema de inmigración de este pais. El aumento masivo de la “poli-migra”, la detención y deportación continua a romper la fábrica de nuestras familias y comunidades. Cada dia en los EE.UU., 1.500 padres, madres y niños son separados y encarcelados por inmigración o ICE. Las comunidades inmigrantes de costa a costa del pais tendrán acciones llamadas, “El Dia del Padre es para las Familias” , para recordarle al Congreso y a la administración de Obama que la seperación de familia tiene que terminar ahora. La unificación familiar tiene que ser la parte esencial dentro de cualquier propuesta de ley de inmigración.

En Immokalee, decenas de familias y aliados del suroeste de la Florida se convocarán para mandarle un mensaje claro al Congreso y a la administración de Obama que necesitamos un alto a las deportaciones y necesitamos las familias unidas. Leonarda, una madre del condado de Lee, compartirá su propio testimonio sobre los retos económicos y psicológicos que ha sufrido por no tener a su esposo estos últimos meses. El actualmente está detenido en el centro de detención de Broward en Pompano Beach. Otra madre, quien es una ciudadana americana casada con un inmigrante indocumentado, hablará sobre la dificultad de proveer por sus tres hijos sin su esposo que se encuentre en Mexico sin posibilidad legal de reingresar al país. Muchas otras familias locales compartirán testimonios de por que el dia del padre nos recuerda a la persona que más nos hace falta.

CUANDO: domingo, 16de junio a las 3 PM

QUE: Vigilia y demostración comunitaria

QUIEN: Niños y familias se convocarán con fotos y visuals mostrando a padres de la comunidad que hemos perdido por la deportación o la detención; organizaciones comunitarias también estarán presentes

Immigrant Families Mark Father’s Day with Protests, Other Actions Nationwide

Local vigil and community demonstration with community testimonies by mothers to take place in Immokalee

 For millions of immigrant families, Father’s Day is a reminder of the cruel separation of their families at the hands of the broken immigration system. Mass enforcement, detention and deportation continue to tear our families and communities apart.  Every day in the U.S. 1,500 fathers, mothers, children and friends are taken away and locked-up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Immigrant communities across the country will hold “Father’s Day is for Families” actions to remind Congress and the Obama administration that family separations must end now. Family unity must be a vital part of any immigration reform legislation.

In Immokalee, dozens of families and allies from Southwest Florida will gather together to send a clear message to Congress and the Obama administration that we need a moratorium on deportations and we need to keep families together. Leonarda, a lee county mother, will share her own testimony about the economic and emotional hardship she has suffered being without her husband for several months. He is currently detained in Broward Transitional Center in Pompano Beach. Another mother who is a US citizen married to an undocumented immigrant, will speak to how hard it has been to raise her three children without her husband, who is currently in Mexico unable to return to the United States. Many other local families will share personal testimonies of why father’s day reminds them of the person they miss most dearly.

WHEN: Sunday, June 16th at 3 PM

WHAT: Vigil and community demonstration

WHO: Children and families will gather with pictures and visuals depicting fathers in the community who we have lost to deportation or detention; community organizations will also be present.

WHERE: RCMA, 402 Main Street, Immokalee, FL; we will gather outside in the parking lot.

The event is sponsored by the Florida Immigrant Coalition (FLIC) and the Farmworkers Association of FL (FWAF). View the more than 30 events taking place in the country this weekend here
