not 1 more deportation workshop

  1. 1. Not One More Deportation Workshop Migrant justice activists in Chicago, IL stop a deportation bus, 2013
  2. 2. National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) • national org that works primarily with • • Undocumented youth + allies chain themselves to the entrance of a detention center in Adelanto, California, 2013 day laborers works to unify + strengthen member organizations to develop leadership, mobilize + organize day laborers in order to protect and expand their rights have several national campaigns:migrant rights: Alto Arizona, Breaking ICE’s hold -labor rights: wage theft -health and safety of day laborers
  3. 3. DHS after 9/11 ● 1996 IIRIRA and Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act ● 287g and Secure Communities ● Department of Homeland Security: Shift toward militarization, privatization, and blurring of criminal and immigration law. ● Building a physical border: $90 billion ● Detention Industrial Complex; CCA
  4. 4. A Snapshot of Undocumented America ● Estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants in US:76% of undocumented immigrants are Latinos 59% of undocumented immigrants are from Mexico 11% of undocumented immigrants are from Asia 20% of the nation’s undocumented immigrants live in California
  5. 5. Why Deportations? ● There is a human cost to the policing of the immigration crisis:-that cost if often ● our communities who are targeted by these unjust policies ● Deportations are about fear: Instill fear in our communities. It’s not necessarily about deportations, but the fear of them ● US economy needs low-cost labor to survive. If the US got rid of all undocumented labor in the US, the economy would collapse. Separation of families: -Of the undocumented people with children, 73% of them have U.S. born children -About 5.1 million children in 2009 had at least one parent who was an unauthorized immigrant, ● ● Deportation is one of the clearest manifestations of the broken immigration system -Lack of just immigration reform. The 2013 bill called for: -double the number of border security agents from 21,000 to 41,000 -700 miles of a new fence across the border -ramp up Southern border security by $4.5 billion -maintain secure communities program -no age cap on DREAM act Deportations and border enforcement easier to fund and deal with than coming up with a bipartisan immigration reform.
  6. 6. Who gets deported?
  7. 7. How does #not1more challenge deportations? “As the immigration debate continues, #Not1More enters the discussion from the place that touches people in concrete ways and can offer tangible relief. By collectively challenging unfair deportations and inequality through organizing, art, legislation, and action, we aim to reverse criminalization, build migrant power, and create immigration policies based on principles of inclusion.” -NDLON undocumented activists + allies stop a deportation bus in San Francisco, 2013
  8. 8. 2 MILLION DEPORTATIONS ● ● ● Obama administration has deported more people than any president in the history of the United States In the coming months, will hit 2 million deportations Obama needs to take executive action and put a halt to deportations!

He should not spend another year in detention, his children and family need him home.”
  10. 10. Arizona Hunger Strikers “The purpose of this Hunger Strike is to demand the release and halt the unnecessary deportation of our loved ones.
