    #WomenDisobey march shuts down DC streets to protest Trump immigration policies

    #WomenDisobey march shuts down DC streets to protest Trump immigration policies

    Hundreds of women gathered in D.C. on Thursday to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

    The #WomenDisobey march was organized to protest the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border, which leads to the detention of immigrant families caught illegally crossing the border.


    The crowds, largely comprised of women, blocked traffic as they protested outside of the Department of Justice building.


    Video shows protestors chanting “abolish ICE” and “we care.”


    Demonstrators also marched to the offices of senators, yelling, “What do we want, justice. When do we want it, now.”


    The Women's March, which organized massive protests throughout the world the day after President Trump's inauguration in 2017, is behind Thursday's march.

    Trump signed an executive order last week to end the policy of separating immigrant children from parents who are facing prosecution for illegally crossing the border.


    That zero tolerance policy remains in place and officials are now identifying ways to detain immigrant families together.

    Hundreds of women in D.C. protest ‘zero-tolerance’ immigration policy

    June 28, 2018

    WASHINGTON - They came from all over the country, slept at friends’ homes or in churches to risk arrest in Washington on Thursday.


    Hundreds of women from 47 states gathered in Freedom Plaza, robed in white and carrying signs deriding the Trump administration’s ‘‘zero-tolerance’’ immigration policy.

    Most were white, stumbling over the syllables of Spanish-language chants. Many had never faced arrest before. But here they were.



    ‘‘I have two kids and as a white mother, there is almost no circumstance that they would be taken away from me - ever,’’ said Victoria Farris, who slept Wednesday night in All Souls Church after participating in civil disobedience training. ‘‘I was awake one night because I couldn’t sleep thinking about all those (immigrant) mothers and terrified children. I realized I had to do something more than protest, more than make a sign and march.


    The protest, organized by a coalition of organizations including the Women’s March and local immigrant advocacy group CASA de Maryland, was meant to demand the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and an end to family detentions for migrants crossing the southern border.


    Several participants had written ‘‘WE CARE’’ on their palms, a rebuke of first lady Melania Trump’s controversial jacket, which she wore on her first trip to visit detained children near the border.


    Ana Maria Archila, executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy, said calling for the disbandment of ICE ‘‘would have seemed absurd even a few months ago.’’


    But now it was central to the mission of her group and Thursday’s march.


    ‘‘This country has finally been exposed to the brutality and inhumanity of immigration enforcement,’’ she said. ‘‘This barrage of injustices has inspired us to say, ‘No more. We will not be silent. We will not obey.’’’


    After starting at Freedom Plaza, the group was expected to march to the Department of Justice and the Hart Senate Office Building.


    The administration’s immigration crackdown hit resistance this week after the House rejected a border bill championed by the president, and a federal judge ordered the government to reunite immigrant families within month.

    But organizers said that has done little to abate national outrage. Thursday’s march was one of several Washington demonstrations this week to rebuke Trump’s immigration policies.


    On Wednesday, dozens of activists, including several who were recipients of the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which gives temporary protection to immigrants illegally brought into the country as children, rallied outside the Washington headquarters of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and called for the organization’s dissolution. They shouted at police and implored workers peering out the windows to ‘‘quit your job.’’


    On Saturday, thousands of protesters are expected to descend on Lafayette Square in a protest calling for the end of family detentions and the return of the at least 2,500 children who were separated from their parents at the southern border. Organizers of the D.C. rally also plan protests in 351 congressional districts around the country.

    Will the American mothers who are protesting go to JAIL without THEIR children?

    I hope so!

    Hand their children over to CPS for breaking the Law and disrupting our businesses!
