ROP is joining a multistate caravan to California this week to protest deportation and demand immigration reform now.
Real people’s lives are being impacted right now by our broken detention and deportation systems.
* My friend who is a high school counselor is spending this week in Tacoma in court because one of her students is in the process of deportation to a country he’s never been to and only has distant relatives who live there.
* 300 farmworkers lost their jobs in Polk County recently
* 350 workers were recently detained in Laurel, Mississippi.
* And nearly 60% of immigrants detained this past year were handed over by local law enforcement, though most do not have a criminal conviction.
This system is hurting families every day. And ROP leaders Steve Milligan & Jerry Atkin are hitting the streets this week to speak out (or, getting on the bus that is!).
