Stopping the bus was just the beginning. #United4Families
This week, leaders from the Arizona Dream Act Coalition, and United We Dream, engaged in an unprecedented civil disobedience and escalated action to stop a bus in the middle of deportation proceedings at the Phoenix Removal and Detention Facility, the ICE post in downtown Phoenix. This action came only hours after four other heroic DREAM leaders were arrested for chaining themselves to a fence of the ICE complex, shutting down ICE operations.
These actions in Arizona are also targeting Congressman Matt Salmon (R-AZ) and Congressman Ed Pastor (D-AZ) to urge them to help deliver immigration reform that halts aggressive, senseless enforcement practices, unites families, and creates a clear path to citizenship for Americans without papers.
