Faces from the #Not1More Boston Rally Against Deportations (4/17/14)
President Obama has deported 2 million people since he came into office and is the nation’s “Deporter in Chief.” Despite signing an executive order to halt the deportations of undocumented immigrants who came as children, he has taken no similar actions to halt the deportations of their older family members. Families are being split and destroyed every day by the Obama administration’s current policies, and President Obama has the power to sign a similar executive order tomorrow halting all deportations until Congress takes comprehensive action. But he has refused and continues to drag his feet, and some of the most marginalized families in our country are paying the price of his inaction.
I had the pleasure to attend and take pictures at this rally last Thursday, and it was incredibly moving.
Together we say: not one more family destroyed, not one more day without equality, not one more indifferent reaction to suffering, not one more deportation.
