Liberate ALL Families/ Liberar TODAS Las Familias

Across the border and in communities of color here in Massachusetts, immigrants and people of color are being targeted by ICE and the police, exploited at their jobs, and separated from their children and loved ones.
At the border, children are being separated from their parents and their own brothers and sisters while corporations and private prisons and jails are profiting off of detention and deportation.
So what is Massachusetts doing to protect immigrant families? The state Senate passed a budget amendment with 4 basic protections, to stop police from helping detain immigrants (287g program) and to protect civil rights and due process. But the House is doing NOTHING, and Governor Baker has threatened to veto the Senate measure.
We need to be loud and clear. Join immigrant workers and people of color from across the state at the Springfield Court Square as we say NO to detention, No to deportation, No to separating families at the border, no to incarceration, no to police brutality, no to foreclosure here in Massachusetts!
