UWD Takes Action on White House for Delay of Deportation Review

Share This:

Today, over 30 DREAMers conducted an act of civil disobedience against the White House and its decision to delay its deportation review.  None were arrested.

As Greisa Martinez, field organizer for United We Dream, said in a statement prior to the event:

Immigrant youth across the country are outraged that the President refuses to address the fierce urgency of acting now.  We will fight for now, because our families cannot wait any longer. By asking us to wait, the President has agreed to deport 97,000 more people between now and August and he must be held accountable.
