California: Protest demands full legalization, end to raids and deportations
On Jan. 21, the Southern California Immigration Coalition held a rally in front of the Los Angeles Federal Building to send a message to the President Obama demanding legalization for 10 million immigrants and an end to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids and deportations.
The new Southern California Immigration Coalition is made up of teachers, students, anti-war and immigrant rights groups based in southern California. The Coalition was formed to build unity in the struggle against the increased repression against immigrants – especially against Mexican immigrants. The Coalition will continue the fight to win full legalization from the new administration. The Southern California Immigration Coalition will lead a march on March 28, to build toward the May 1 demonstration for immigrant rights in downtown Los Angeles
