#Not1More Deportation

LGBTQ Orgs Endorse August 2nd NATIONAL Day of Action for Administrative Relief + Immediate Halt to Deportations!

Southerners On New Ground [SONG], Transgender Law Center [TLC] and many others are joining forces on August 2nd in Washington, DC, to amplify the national call to demand that President Obama grant the BROADEST ADMINISTRATIVE RELIEF possible and implement an immediate halt to deportations!

We know President Obama has legal authority to deliver Administrative Relief and to change current enforcement policies and practices by the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He can support the safety and self-determination of ALL our LGBTQ communities by expanding Deferred Action and other relief from deportation, ending the torture of solitary confinement (including against trans and gender nonconforming immigrants), curtailing the caging of our communities through immigration detention, and stopping the use of ICE holds which encourage local police to even further target LGBT people of color for arrest and deportation.

We call on LGBTQ officials such as the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus to recognize that LGBTQ issues go beyond marriage equality and that deportations and immigration detention all too often violently impact and tear apart our communities. We call on them to SUPPORT and FLANK our communities’ call to President Obama to provide the broadest possible Administrative Relief and immediately halt deportations!
