Statewide Day of Action to Decry Texas
Anti-Immigrant Agenda
Dozens of Texan Cities to Fiercely Oppose and Condemn Anti-Immigrant proposals that Hurt Texas

El Paso, TX /Southern New Mexico- Border Network for Human Rights will hold a March and Rally on Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 starting at 11:00 a.m. this actions are part of the Statewide mobilizations convened by Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance (RITA) to repudiate the anti-immigrant agenda being discussed at the Texas Legislature. Proposals like HB11 in the House and SB3 in the Senate not only aim to undermine the trust communities currently have towards law enforcement agencies, but also attempt to hurt Texas economy and values leaving thousands of students without access to in-state tuition.

While our state is moving forward with policies that would deploy hundreds DPS personnel for the vague cause of “securing the border”, dozens of cities will join us around the state in a Statewide Day of Action to make sure that immigrant and border voices are heard loudly and clearly in Austin, in that sense BNHR reiterates its opposition to any proposal that endeavors to injure the great state of Texas.

WHAT: March and Rally Opposing Texas Anti-Immigrant Agenda
WHERE: March starting at 11:00 a.m.  (Starting Point at 1000 Chihuahua Street)
                    Rally starting at Noon at Cleveland Square Park (510 N. Santa Fe St)
. WHEN: Wednesday, March 25th, 2015
