Press Release

Undocumented Leaders and Allies Host Watch Party for President’s Immigration Announcement

Burien, WA -

WHAT: Watch party for President Obama’s Immigration announcement

WHO: Undocumented Leaders and Allies Gather to Watch President’s Obama Announcement on Immigration Executive Action

WHERE: La Colectiva Legal del Pueblo – 14249 Ambaum Blvd SW, Suite R, Burien, WA 98166

WHEN: Thursday Nov 20th at 5PM

After the White House released a video yesterday of President Obama explaining he would make the announcement of his executive action on deferring deportations for millions of families Thursday at 5 PM PST via web and TV, NWDC Resistance and other immigrant - led grassroots organizations will host a watch party for community members to view the breaking news. 

On Friday the 21st  at 10 AM PST, NWDC Resistance will host a press conference and rally at the Tacoma Detention Center, joining other cities across the country, replicating a weekly concert series that started at the detention center in Los Angeles with protest concerts at ICE offices and holding facilities across the country.

Undocumented leaders and members of the NWDC Resistance and Not1More campaign will be available for interviews.

Since April of 2013, the #Not1More campaign has worked to stop individual deportations, pass local legislation to limit involvement in removal efforts, and organized dramatic civil disobediences and mobilizations to pressure the President to act. NWDC Resistance has maintained strong support of detainees organizing hunger strikes within the NW Detention Center in Tacoma , calling attention to detention conditions and demanding a stop to deportations.
