Houston Rallies to End Family Separation

Houstonians to Meet, March from City Hall to Ted Cruz’s Office

On June 30th a “Families Belong Together” national day of action will take place with more than 600 events in all 50 states, and an anchor protest in Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C. Tens of thousands of people across the nation are expected to participate in the action, with the focus on opposing the separation and detention of immigrant families.

Houston’s rally will take place at City Hall, where a #HoustonStrong crowd will hear stories from those affected by family separation and march to the office of Senator Ted Cruz.

What: National Day of Action Against Family Separation and Deportation

When: Saturday, June 30th, 10:00 AM

Where:

Demands for this event focus on pro-family policies:

  • Reunite families now
    Permanently end family separation and immediately reunify those that have been separated.

  • End family detention
    Children and families deserve due process, not indefinite imprisonment. Children do not belong in baby cages and internment-like camps. Family incarceration is not the solution to family separation.

  • End ‘Zero Tolerance
    Reverse the Trump administration’s policy that created this crisis and chaos to begin with. Parents should not be criminally prosecuted for doing what all parents do, which is bring their children to safety. This horrible nightmare for families will only end when Trump permanently stops his 100% prosecution policy.

  • No Muslim Ban Ever
    The recent iteration of the Muslim Ban is an attack on civil rights and democracy.

  • Abolish ICE
    Bring the deportation machine to a halt in favor of a more just approach to immigration policy that recognizes the humanity in everyone. Stop tearing families apart.

  • Clean DREAM Act
    Welcome DREAMers to our country and our society so they can live in peace with their families.

  • End private prisons and accompanying donations
    Congressional representatives in Texas take more private prison money from corporate detention centers such as GEO Group than any other representatives. These funds incentivize mistreatment and family separation.
