In 2013 New Orleans has seen an increase of families being torn apart by immigration raids and deportation, especially affecting a large number of parents and day laborers.
These immigration raids have taken place in small stores, parking lots, apartment buildings, day laborer corners and people’s homes. The New Orleans Congress of Day Laborers and the families facing separation are organizing a campaign to stop these raids, and stop the deportations of their loved ones.
Please sign on to these two letters to Immigration and Customs Enforcement if you represent a community organization or institution that supports these parents and workers fighting against deportation.
