Democratic Socialists of America - La Plata County
La Plata County Courthouse, 1060 E 2nd Ave, Durango, CO
Angry about families being ripped apart at the border?
It's happening here, too.
Concerned citizens have been protesting DAILY against the round up of undocumented immigrants in our community, at the La Plata County Courthouse. Typically 1-3 people protest at a time, at different times of day.
The last Wednesday of each month is a day that translators are available at the County Courthouse. Many non-English speakers are scheduled for court on that day, typically appearing to pay minor fines for misdemeanors, etc.
We will be there on Wednesday, November 28th to deter I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
Our small presence has made a HUGE difference - by simply showing up, we make it easier for immigrants to come, pay their fine, and go about their lives unmolested. We have been thanked by immigrants, by attorneys, by the police and deputy sheriffs.
We want a bigger presence next Wednesday to send a clear message that we support DREAMERS and other undocumented people and wish them no harm.
