South Floridians will gather in Downtown Miami tomorrow, Wednesday, January 17, to send a message that the recent xenophobic policies against our immigrant communities must end. Senator Marco Rubio and Congressman Mario Diaz Balart have been key in the effort to pass anti-immigration legislation in Washington. From ending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for many living in Florida, to not supporting needed protections for our youth, such as DACA, leaders in Washington have failed the millions who face deportation.
Who: Monica Russo, President of SEIU Florida
Marleine Bastien, Executive Director of FANM
Maria Rodriguez, Executive Director of Florida Immigration Coalition
What: A march and rally to stand up for immigrant communities.
Where: Government Center, 111 NW 1st Street, Downtown Miami
When: TOMORROW, Wednesday, January 17
Time: 5:00PM (Will be livestreamed on the SEIU Florida Facebook page)
