Our limp noodle President and Democratic Party leadership have failed to live up to their campaign promise to stop the deportations and separation of families. Obama deports 1,000 people a day, leaving one to two thousand U.S. citizen children to watch a father or mother taken away by men with guns every single day.
Some have buckled to the democrats offer to “support” legalization for a few while they continue the devastation of the many. We don’t believe the democrat’s offer and will never accept the destruction of the lives of millions of families. Others want to give up the national fight for Legalization or a Moratorium and leave local communities alone to resist from the ground.
We will not retreat. We will not allow the government we elected to retreat.
THE FAMILIAS UNIDAS and DESAFIO LATINO CALL TO ACTION FOR THE NEXT 45 DAYS
From August 1st to September 15th, Familias Unidas will hold family unity testimony meetings across the nation and recruit “Godparents” for these families who commit themselves to civil disobedience without bail. The Godparents will gather in Washington D.C. and around the nation on September 15th to fulfill their pledge to faith and family.
From August 1st to September 15th, Desafio Latino will select incumbent democratic congressmen in districts across the nation, beginning with the majority leader and the chair of the immigration committee, to run “Passover campaigns” among Latino voters in their constituency. These democrats, who have failed to co-sponsor the broadly supported immigration reform bill in the house, who have blocked it from consideration and who have failed to call on President Obama to declare a moratorium on deportations, will be boycotted in November if they do not change their positions. We will register to vote and turn out our vote in their districts but pass over their names on the ballot.
We will mobilize. We will confront. We will not comply. We will never give up.
If you Dare to Struggle, You Dare to Win. If You don’t Dare to Struggle, You don’t Deserve to Win !
Sign up now to hold a Familias Unidas Rally in your city, to become a Padrino or Madrina or to join Desafio Latino and challenge your local Congressman.
