Join FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) to protest the National Homeland Security Conference!

The Conference is an enormous propaganda event for the Department of Homeland Security and private security contractors, responsible for the detention and deportation of millions of migrants.

DHS out of NYC!

Abolish ICE and DHS and the Police!

Asylum for Central American Refugees; Open the Borders

Close all Detention Centers & Prisons

End militarization of the Border

Justice for everyone killed in detention

Justice for LGBTQ migrants

No Muslim Ban, No Wall, No Border

Reunite ALL families – including those separated from the mass incarceration of Black, Brown & poor people

Solidarity with African, Asian & Middle Eastern migrants.

Reparations now to Puerto Rico for US colonialism

Permanent Residence now for all im/migrants

US & Pentagon out of Central America & everywhere! No War Abroad

The DHS includes the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) which is responsible for the continued devastation of Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. We demand reparations for Puerto Rico.

After the action, join us at Occupy ICE NYC at Foley Square for Dinner.
