Cleveland March Against ICE: Families Belong Together

Thursday, June 14, 2018
4 PM- 7 PM
Public Square 50 Public Square Cleveland, Ohio 44113

This march is in response to the horrific abuses of immigrants, their children and families. Marches will take place across the country on June 14th with Families Belong Together. Below is the mission statement provided in both Spanish and English.

Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. Families Belong Together opposes the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.
