Surge in California a movement of indignation against deportations
San Diego (California) – California is the birthplace of a new movement of “protesters” in the U.S. that has as its objective halting the deportations of immigrants and emphasizing the role of Hispanics in the national movements, according to what its representatives told EFE today.
“Occupy the migra” was born in San Diego (southern California), where its members occupied the base of the Office of Immigration and Customs (ICE) last week, and intends to carry out similar actions in other cities of the U.S.
According to what Mike Garcia, president of the southern California based United Service Workers of the West (sic), one of the organizations involved in “Let’s Occupy the migra,” said today, the movement responds to tactics applied by ICE in Minnesota and San Francisco.
Garcia denounced that ICE has implemented “”round-ups of the records” of companies, which has resulted in loss of jobs, particularly of janitorial workers. According to the union official, ICE requests documents from the companies, which after auditing results in demands for layoffs or demands that the workers furnish new documentation. In this way the union has lost 1,200 of its members, janitors, three years ago in Minnesota (and) a similar number in San Francisco a year and a half ago, while the agency recently started the same process in San Diego.
Garcia said that the movement seeks to emphasize the role that immigrants have in the national protest movement, since “we are also part of the 99 percent.”
For the activist, (meaning Garcia) ICE’s actions “turn back decades of organizational work, because the undocumented workers have fought for the right to join unions to improve their living conditions.” According to the union leader the next “Occupation” will soon take place in San Francisco.
The activist Enrique Morones, founder of the Border Angels group, pointed out that the “occupation” of ICE in San Diego last week also served to point out the case of the Honduran immigrant Omar Aguilar. Morones said that ICE has not accepted Aguilar’s asylum application notwithstanding that three of his relatives have been murdered by organized crime in Honduras, so he will be deported after having lived five years in the U.S.
Morones said that President Barack “Obama said that they would concentrate on criminals and Omar is not a criminal; he didn’t have adequate legal representation for which reason we seek to have his deportation suspended.”
The activist pointed out the link between the protest actions in the country, born of the “Occupy Wall Street,” and the activism of groups for reform of immigration laws. In his “Facebook” page “Occupy the migra”, he demands that John Morton, director of ICE, cease the attack on union workers.
