Comunidad: Acompañenos mañana a las 10 afuera de las oficinas del Congresista Luis Gutierrez para exigir que pida parar las deportaciones y que deje de dividir a nuestras comunidades! No mas deportaciones!

Please join us at Congressman Luis Gutierrez's office tomorrow at 10AM to demand that he call for a moratorium on deportations and for an end to his divisive policies. No more deportations!

"I am not one of those people who argue for leniency for criminal immigrants. If you have serious criminal activity on your record you have given up your U.S.A. privileges and generally speaking I will not spend time or energy fighting for you." -- Congressman Gutierrez

Congressman Gutierrez Should Call for a Moratorium on Deportations [Press Conference]

June 30, 2016, 10:00am - June 30, 2016, 12:00pm

3240 W Fullerton Ave, Chicago, IL 60647-2512, United States

Congressman Luis Gutierrez is in an important position to call for a moratorium on all deportations and urge the democratic party to do the same. WHY CONGRESSMAN GUTIERREZ? In addition to being a leading voice on immigrant rights, he is part of the committee that is writing the democratic platform and is close to the leading Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton. Now that the Supreme Court Decision struck down DAPA, many are left vulnerable to criminalization by local law enforcement and are at risk of deportation. This press conference will call on Congressman Gutierrez to take a stand with immigrants targeted by immigration enforcement and work to urge the democratic party to support a moratorium on deportations. WHY NOT JUST MEET WITH HIM OR ASK NICELY? The moratorium on deportations that we are asking for would include all members of our community. But throughout the time that we have been working on defending the deportation of our community members, Congressman Gutierrez has refused to support anyone who has been a victim of mass incarceration or dragged into the criminal justice systems. He has plainly told us and our community members that people with records are just not worth defending. Congressman Gutierrez's version of being a "champion of immigrant rights" demonizes and excludes individuals with records and divides our community. In addition, his statements do not happen in a vacuum, in November 2014 President Obama claimed his administration would deport "felons, not families," Congressman Gutierrez was quick to echo the message and continued dividing the immigrant community into "good immigrants" vs "bad immigrants," "worthy vs unworthy." We have asked nicely. And he has refused to help, even when people are under immediate threat of deportation. We want him to get a clear message that we want to keep our communities together, and that calls for a moratorium on all deportations. DO YOU HAVE AN EXAMPLE? Quote from the Congressional Hearing - July 23, 2015 "Many argue that old convictions on drunk driving should be forgiven, when determining whether someone should get deported or not. After all, they have served their time and paid the consequences doled out by the criminal justice system. I am not one of those people who argue for leniency for criminal immigrants. If you have serious criminal activity on your record you have given up your U.S.A. privileges and generally speaking I will not spend time or energy fighting for you."
