FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

STOP THE RAIDS! STOP THE MURDERS! STOP THE WAR AGAINST MIGRANTS!

The US government continues targeting migrant communities. Nationally, raids have abducted, kidnapped, and detained a record 26,500 people across the United States by federal authorities (source: Washington- AFP, 2/18/07). This is not acceptable! Families are separated and communities are living in fear and terror.

Along the US-Mexico border, in Fiscal Year 2005, there were a record-breaking 473 migrant deaths at the US-Mexico border; over 260 were on the Arizona border (source: Migration Information Source). O n January 13, 2007, 22 year-old Francisco Dominguez of Puebla, Mexico, was shot to death by an unidentified Border Patrol agent in Naco, AZ. (source: Tucson Citizen)

We are witnessing heightened repression and violence against our communities. These are not isolated events, but rather part of a systematic, nationally coordinated effort to terrorize migrant communities. We do not accept these attacks!

We are holding a press conference denouncing all raids and murders!

Stop the Raids!
Border Patrol out of our Communities!
