WHERE: Brownsville TX/Matamoros MX
WHEN: On January 12, 2020, we begin a sustained presence
WHY: Remain in Mexico (MPP)
“MPP (Migrant Protection Protocols) are a sham and just one component in the well oiled machine overtly trying to end asylum in this country.” --RAICES (Refugee & Immigrant Center for Education & Legal Services)
PLEASE JOIN US at the Texas-Mexico border beginning on January 12, 2020, to highlight the growing humanitarian crisis among refugees and asylum seekers, caused by US immigration policy.
Activists will gather in Brownsville TX to protest the Justice Dept’s "tent courts." We hope to support the ACLU in their efforts towards legal transparency and fairness.
Activists with passports may also cross the bridge into Matamoros MX to bear witness to the life-threatening living conditions of migrants who have been pushed back into Mexico.
Join us on the ground to bring broad public attention to "MPP," the Migrant Protection Protocols. MPP has forced children and families back into very dangerous conditions in Mexico. The protest will continue as long as citizens of conscience appear.
“Josh Rubin, a witness and organizer of the protest], exemplifies the kind of vision, courage and commitment that is needed to turn back the tide against the cruelties that are inherent in the immigration policies promoted by the Trump administration.” --Camilo Perez Bustillo, Hope Border Institute, TX, and Stanford University, CA
