PLEASE make some last minute calls for Jorge and share this widely!


The DC office doesn’t want to take calls because it’s after 5pm… maybe those assholes should stop trying to deport people after 5pm

I literally called all the ICE offices (ERO suboffice, Atlanta ERO, etcc…) trying to get an answer but none of them answer post 4pm.

I hate you so much ICE. So fucking much.

Happening now in NC!
Most of the team has been removed from the office. Elisa and Cinthia are still sitting in Hagan’s Greensboro office.
Greensboro PD threatened to arrest the media that was present. They also lectured Elisa and Cinthia that civil disobedience like this doesnt get attention, doesn’t move people/senators. In Greensboro of all places.
Why the hell won’t Senator Hagan support this single mother in deportation?

URGENT: On December 2011, Reyes was stopped by a police officer who arrested him for driving without a license. Now, he faces deportation THIS WEDNESDAY. If deported, Reyes will be separated from his wife and a U.S. citizen son and daughter who need their dad. 

If you’re a leader in an organization and support immigrant rights, sign onto this letter of support for DREAMer Alfred Reyes. Please fill out the form to the right immediately. 


In December of 2010, US federal agencies raided the Miami house they were staying at temporarily en route to Canada. ICE arrested these six ethnic Tamil men placed them in detention at Broward Transitional Center in Pompano Beach, Florida.  They have been detained at BTC for the past 22 months, trying to apply for asylum!  If they are deported back to Sri Lanka, they face the very real threat of being killed by the same groups who threatened them to begin with.

Victor has been detained at Broward Transitional Center since May 8th. Victor’s 13 year old US citizen daughter has fallen into deep depression and is not eating or sleeping as a result of her dad’s detention. 

UPDATE: The daughter has fallen into deep depression alongside anxiety attacks due to the recent news of her father’s Thursday deportation. Make some calls to ICE and Senator Nelson.She needs to be reunited with her dad! 

Manuel is currently being held at Jena Detention Center in Louisiana and faces deportation to a country he hasn’t been to since he was 3 years old. If deported, he will be separated from his family and his U.S. citizen wife.


On November 16th, 2007, former Governor Ted Kulongoski issued an executive order removing driving privileges. This caused an unsafe environment for all drivers in Oregon. Many undocumented residents have been deported or placed into deportation proceedings for nothing more than driving without a valid license. 

Governor Kitzhaber can change this by issuing an EXECUTIVE ORDER granting licenses to all Oregonian families.

Jose Ucelo Gonzalez is a day laborer who is facing deportation because his shady boss called the police instead of paying him for the work he completed. All charges against Jose were dropped after it became clear that the employer — who refused to pay Jose for his hard work — was the real criminal. But by then, Jose had already been transferred to immigration officials. Instead of his paycheck, he now faces the possibility of deportation and separation from his baby son.

The NIYA Convening in Florida- Make it Happen!

dreamactivistfl:

Greetings Florida folks!


I hope that this message finds you well! I am reaching out to you in hopes of finding solid support for the work I know you believe in. The National Immigrant Youth Alliance has been a platform for undocumented youth to come out, organize, and mobilize their communities. In the last two years, the NIYA has seen the involvement of parents grow and strengthen within our organizational members.  All of this has been possible because of people that have donated their time and energy; without receiving a single penny for their work. As we have said in the past, all of our work is volunteer run.

 Most recently two organizers risked their own deportation in order to infiltrate the Broward transitional Center here in South Florida; to organize by collecting stories and information from the inside, then pushing out this information to organizers on the outside. Many of the low-priority cases found involve people with no criminal records who had been detained for several months without access to basic medical care. With Obama’s new announcement, our work has increased tremendously, and so has our need to inform our community of these new announcements.

However, we must continue to mobilize and strengthen our community. From October 5th to the 7th, National Immigrant Youth Alliance is going to have our annual convening in Lake Worth, FL. We have done a lot this year, and the need to reflect, regroup,and re-energize is much needed. This mass mobilization involves the presentation of our members from all across the country. It is our opportunity to stand together in the face of a rising tide of anti-immigrant sentiment, and to express the change we desire in a national election year.

As of now, we have over 100 members confirmed to come to the convening. We are trying to make the cut for housing, food, and our work space; our finally goal to reach is $5,000. Your support is what helps us grow and strengthen as an alliance. Please consider making a donation to help make this convening a reality!

Every bit helps-  If you are unable to contribute pls share widely!

While groups wonder if DREAM eligible youth will keep up the fight for their families now that DACA has been implemented (seriously), the National Immigrant Youth Alliance continues to fight for our families. After infiltrating Broward Transitional Center, the case of Samuel Soto came up. ICE is trying to tear this family apart despite an approved marriage application. Senator Nelson is refusing to help the family because Samuel was once deported 15 years ago, but telling everyone that they’re talking to the appropriate agencies.

Samuel should still qualify for prosecutorial discretion under the Morton Memo. Samuelito shouldn’t have to grow up without his father.
Take a stand for our communities. Take a stand for Samuelito and the other kids like him. Samuel could be deported at any time, we need to take action.

My friend, Viridiana, who was one of the NIYA organizers to infiltrate Broward Transitional Center and was kicked out on Friday was just arrested in an act of civil disobedience calling for the release of low priority cases still in deportation proceedings, despite memo after memo saying these people shouldn’t be in deportation. Viri told us that she isn’t leaving florida until Inga is free. Inga has been in detention for two and a half years, despite having a work permit, no criminal record, and US citizen family members.

Take action for Viri, Marco, Inga, and all of the other low-priority deportation cases at BTC.

NIYA’s “Internal Review” of Broward Transitional Center

reallifedocumentarian:

This is what the “humane” immigration policy looks like. This is what the prioritization memos amount to. This is going on every day. It’s not just Broward- this is systemic. Undocumented youth are demanding accountability and the release of low-priority cases. From NIYA’s press release:

In order to challenge Immigration and Customs Enforcement and GEO Group, Inc. which owns the facility, we have placed multiple NIYA members inside Broward Transitional Center to find people who are eligible for deferred action, are low-priority cases. In this one facility alone, we have found over 100 cases of people who, according to the Obama policies of the past year, should be released back to their families.

According to the information given to us by the organizers inside, there are:

  • people inside Broward who have pending application for a U Visa;
  • More than a dozen DREAM Act eligible youth;
  • Over 60 individuals with no criminal record or prior deportations, - - some detained as passengers in vehicles;
  • More than 3-dozen cases in which individuals are still eligible for discretion despite previous contacts with the system;
  • Several cases of immigrants in need of immediate medical care, including one individual with a blood clot in his leg and another with a bullet in the spine;
