This just came from the Congregational Church of Christ in Greensboro--can you go to Charlotte on Thursday? Let me know if you want to carpool from WS.

Friends,
Minerva has received a letter from ICE ordering her to come to an appointment this Thursday, Nov. 16 at the ICE offices/DHS in Charlotte. Her attorney does not think she will be detained then, but does think they may issue a new deportation order. It is possible they will do nothing, but sadly we cannot trust them. The lawyer has requested that we hold a news conference in front of the ICE building in Charlotte. We need to get a lot of people there as a peaceful show of support for her.

This is disturbing news, not entirely unexpected, but we believe that public pressure can make a difference. We are alerting the media and hope to have a strong media presence. Here are the details:

PRESS CONFERENCE

WHEN: Thurs. Nov. 16, 12 noon

WHERE: USCIS Office, 6130 Tyvola Center Drive, Charlotte NC

WHO: Minerva Cisneros Garcia, her attorney and supporters

WHAT: Calling upon ICE to honor the Federal Judge’s vacating of deportation order

CARPOOL: Be in the parking lot at Congregational UCC no later than 10:00 a.m.
PLEASE JOIN US IF YOU CAN. AND SHARE THIS WITH OTHERS WHO MIGHT BE ABLE TO TAKE PART.
CONTACT JULIE (336-202-3691) OR PAUL (336-207-5656) IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS.
LET"S BE THERE FOR MINERVA, EDUARDO, ANTONIO AND MATEO!!!
Thank you.

CLEAN DREAM ACT: Call to Action Week

November 6, 2017, 8:00am - November 10, 2017, 5:00pm

YWCA USA & YWCA High Point's Latino Family Center support a CLEAN Dream Act! On November 6th through November 10th we will be having our Call to Action Week in support of a Clean Dream Act. This is the time to urge congress to pass a CLEAN Dream Act and save the livelihood of thousands of immigrant youth who contribute to this coutnry they call home. Why does Congress need to pass a clean Dream Act? -DACA is phased out. Thousands of immigrant youth will start to lose their right to work starting March 6th. - DACA does not provide a legal status; it provides a 2 year protection from being deported and a 2 year renewable work permit - DACA holders needed to renew their work permit every 2 years at a cost of $495 (immigration costs) plus lawyer’s cost, which can vary - Current DACA holders do not qualify for in-state tuition at public UNC institutions or community colleges. They also do not qualify for any type of financial aid or government grants. If a DACA holder or undocumented student wants to pursue higher education he/she will need to pay the out-of-state tuition rate The time to ACT is NOW! Actions you can take are: -CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS -EMAIL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS -WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR AT YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER -JOIN GROUPS IN YOUR AREA CURRENTLY TAKING ACTION

Thanks to all the work the community has done showing up to City Hall since December, organizing different community events to fight back against the new administration and resist the racist, xenophobic, and unjust immigration policies, and collecting around 1,000 signatures and counting…. the moment has finally arrived for a vote on the Welcoming City Resolution which was proposed by Dan Besse after weeks of organizing and putting pressure on City Council to adopt such a resolution!

Y'all have shown time and time again that we are going to stand up, resist, and fight back and now we need to step up once again in this struggle and get as many folks to come out as possible next Monday to City Hall, the 27th, to stand in solidarity with the most marginalized in our community and show City Council that Winston-Salem believes in human rights, dignity, and compassion!

The new administration's threats towards the Latinx community, Muslims, immigrants, refugees, and countless others makes this moment extremely URGENT moving forward in taking steps to join with the over 37 other cities across the country standing firm in their resistance status despire the threats.This resolution may not go far enough compared to other cities who have taken a greater stand, but we must ensure this resolution passes as we continue to struggle forward and fight against xenophobic, racist, and unjust policies/rhetoric that are separating families, making millions live in fear, and ruining the lives of those in our community, state, and country.

As always, this is just one step of many towards building a more compassionate city built upon justice and dignity that protects the most marginalized and will resist at all costs.

This is an important step in the right direction as we continue to grow, build, resist, and fight together! See you soon!!! PLEASE SHARE WITH EVERYONE. If you absolutely can't make it, make sure to at least email/call your city council members and let them know where you stand!!! (even if you are coming to City Council, please email, write, and call as well!)
