Faith Based Vigil on Saturday Jan. 09, 2010; 4-6 pm.
Members of Southwest Workers’ Union will be present. The entire day our group is fasting in solidarity with the Fast For Our Families (www.fastforourfamilies.org and on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Trail-of-Dreams-Fast-for-Our-Families/238380821788?ref=ts). The Fast For Our Families began on Jan. 01, 2010 in Miami, FL.
Our demands include: the suspension the detention and deportation of immigrants with U.S. citizen children, spouses, and immigrant students until there is resolution on the passage of comprehensive immigration reform; work permits for for immigrants with U.S. citizen children and spouses whose detention and deportation have been suspended until there is resolution in Congress on the passage of immigration reform; the creation of an honest process by which the best interests of communities, families, and children are weighed before detaining and deporting any individual; and we support the request of faster’s in Miami, FL for an in-person meeting with Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
