Thread: Immigration Event Saturday June 18th

  1. #1
    A member of my church and activist community, Roxroy Salmon, will be speaking at an immigrants’ rights event in Union Square this Saturday at noon. Roxroy is a 32-year resident of Brooklyn who is facing deportation despite the fact that his wife, kids and granddaughter are all US citizens. He has a hearing on July 7, after which he could be unjustly and permanently exiled from his entire family and community. Roxroy will be sharing his story at the "Children's Vigil", a youth-led effort to raise awareness about the catastrophic effect US deportation policy has on families. I'm going to be there, along with some other members of the First Presbyterian Church of the City of New York. Below are more details -- please join me, the New Sanctuary Movement, and Families for Freedom at this great event and help spread the word!

    Annual Children’s Vigil Celebrates NY’s Support of American Kids, Immigrant Families
    Honor Father’s Day by Calling for Passage of the Child Citizen Protection Act (HR 182)

    WHAT: On the eve of Father’s Day, Families for Freedom’s Youth Committee will be holding its annual Children’s Vigil to raise awareness about American kids whose families are ripped apart due to the federal government’s draconian deportation policies. The year’s Vigil will celebrate the overwhelming support New York has shown for this bill and pay special tribute to immigrant dads fighting to stay with their families. Youth will follow the Vigil by holding a street corner speak-out to educate the community about what they can do to help win passage of this legislation.
    WHY: As President Obama sets his sights on immigration reform, American kids and their immigrant families want him to know that New Yorkers’ priority is to keep our families together. The Child Citizen Protection Act (HR 182) is the only bill currently in Congress that unties the hands of immigration judges to consider the best interests of U.S. citizen children during deportation proceedings. In the past fiscal year, nearly 350,000 people were deported leaving behind thousands of American kids who need their moms and dads. The Vigil will be a celebration of the hundreds of New Yorkers who have lobbied, called, written, and visited Congress to help get this legislation reintroduced and cosponsored in 2009!
    WHEN: Saturday, June 20, 2009, 11am-1pm

    WHERE: Union Square Park, South (E. 14th St, across from Whole Foods Market)
    WHO: Youth Organizers from Families for Freedom
    Immigrant Organizer and father, Roxroy Salmon and his children
    Representatives from: Congressman Jose Serrano’s Office, Congresswoman Yvette Clarke’s Office, State Senator Jose Serrano’s Office, New York City Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito’s Office, and MORE!
    Religious leaders and congregants from the NYC New Sanctuary Coalition

    Community Organizations: the American Friends Service Committee, Children’s Defense Fund, Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights and many more organizations!

    Hate to say it, but, the vast majority of the American people don’t really care about this kind of thing.

    As far as the immigration side of the matter goes, he could only be deported for one of three reasons. 1. He failed to apply for late amnesty (still possible). 2. Has a criminal record. (if so should be deported) 3. Was sarcastic to an immigration officer (worst of all possible crimes deserves the death penalty).

    Those Immigrants That Come To Live The American Dream Are More Than welcome!!!

    Those That Come to Steal It Are Protected By Organizations And Ignorance Such As Above!!!

    The Children In Many Of These Situations Were Planned As Tools And Weapons Against Deportation, In Addition To Providing Power by Manipulating USA Rules For Monetary Benefit!!!
    In Many Cases These Poor innocent, Unfortunate children Were Used as TOOLS!!! Victims Are The children Of Immigration Related Charades!!!

    Many Countrys Do Not value Children As Those Of USA!! Yet Their ability To manipulate and decieve Are Great!!!

    Some are Organized Together As a Group Banded Together As Manipulators!, Some Come With Truth seeking An honest Life Here In USA! The Groups Of Good immigrants Should Ban Together To Prevent Those Of Fraud From Making The Ultimate Goal More Difficult!!!! Unfortunately Even Within The Groups Reside Those Of Fraud And Deciet, Manipulating Not Only Americans! But Their Own Culture and Race As Well!!!
    USC and Legal, Honest Immigrant Alike Must Fight Against Those That Deceive and Disrupt A Place Of Desirability! All Are Victims of Fraud, Both USC and Honest Immigrant Alike! The bad can and does make it more difficult for the good! Be careful who y

    I normally agree with your posts, Unique, but please don't put words in the mouths of most Americans. Most of us do not have any exception to immigrants and I believe we are still a welcoming nation. USCIS might be s.crewed up, but don't label all of us that way. We all came here from immigrants and most of us realize this. We are not hateful of immigrants at all. Our laws are messed up and need to be fixed. That is what has caused alot of animosity.

    ProudUSC,

    I didn’t say the majority was against immigrants. I said that the majority doesn’t care about these kinds of stories. Cancel all immigration for one year, see what happens. Cancel all football for one year, see what happens.

    The TRUTH about this drug dealer who sells drugs to little children and now claims to be such a great father:

    Deport this Drug Dealer !

    "Salmon, 52, came to the U.S. undocumented in 1977, at the age of 21, with the hope of receiving an education and starting a career.
    But between that year and 1989, he was arrested on drug charges.
    After his run-ins with the law, Salmon started fresh and took a job as a lead remover. He began a family.
    He recently went to U.S. immigration officials to apply for citizenship, but was told he faced possible deportation because of the drug charges and his illegal status.
    The Salmon family faces its unhappy situation because of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996. The law allows people to be deported for crimes committed in the past, regardless of how long in the past."

    "We do understand that the arrest of violators may have a negative impact on the violators' families. However, parenthood does not make a person immune from having to comply with a nation's laws," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Public Affairs Officer Harold Ort said.

    Can you imagine living near this piece of s c u m? Deport this drug dealer !!!Protect our children !!!
