Join us on Thursday at 6:30 pm for a sign-making & planning session to take action against ICE building a new detention center for im/migrants and refugees in Baltimore!
On July 18, the Baltimore Sun announced that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is looking to open a new im/migrant detention center around Baltimore City. This new ICE prison would house between 600 and 800 im/migrant men, women, and children. Maryland already has three ICE detention centers in Howard, Worcester, and Frederick counties.
ICE is waging a horrific, racist war on im/migrants and refugees, especially children. Meanwhile in Baltimore City and around the country, racist law enforcement continues its war of mass incarceration and police brutality on Black and Brown communities. We know that prisons are concentration camps for the poor.
Powerful expressions of solidarity have spread across the U.S. in actions and demonstrations targeting ICE and DHS facilities, as well as Amazon and other companies that aid and collaborate with the Trump regime. Let’s follow the example of the Wayfair and Amazon workers, and of the Latinx, Black, Jewish and other youth who have stood up against ICE and the Trump administration’s racist war on im/migrants and refugees.
Let’s join together in solidarity and demand ICE camps out of Baltimore and Maryland! Justice for im/migrants and refugees everywhere!
