Day Against Deportation 4/5/14

Day Against Deportation 4/5/14

On April 5th, 30 cities across America stood up against deportations; this date marks 2 million deportations under the Obama Administration. The Center for Civic Engagement participated in a anti-deportation march and vigil in Hempstead with NDLON, La Fuente, and other community groups. The chants “Obama escucha, estamos en la lucha” and “Obama, Obama don’t deport my mama” rang from the over 60 participants marching through Hempstead. Once at the Hempstead Bus Terminal, candles were passed out and a moment of silence was given for all those who had been deported. This was a truly great event to be a part of and it was great to see so many students and community members working together. Be on the lookout for information regarding next month’s event against wage theft.
