Fil-Ams join LA street protest to demand an end to deportations

LOS ANGELES – Immigrant rights advocates planned to shut down an office of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), by blocking a downtown Los Angeles intersection during rush hour.

Hundreds gathered outside of the federal building calling for an end to the deportation of undocumented immigrants, especially Central American refugees.

“We’re calling for the stop of the deportations of Central American refugees who are fleeing their countries because of violence. We need the Obama administration keep keep children and their families and really needs to stand up to this injustice,” said Anthony Ng of the Asian Americans Advancing Justice.

The protest came as President Obama’s executive order on deportation continues to make its way through the judicial system.  Advocates believe it is only a partial solution.

“I think it’s a combination of affirmative relief and making sure our communities are protected like the DAPA and DACA  programs is a good step it the deportations and the rates that they’re happening are unacceptable,” pointed out Ng.

The Los Angeles street closure, part of a day-long statewide series of actions, lasted over three hours, resulting in civil disobedience arrests for some of the protesters.

    According to Tito Nep Del Mundo, there are so many thick skinned Pinoys who are doing everything just to bring and support illegals in Northern California. ..

    This people all should be put in jail for 1 year, for trying to back up illegal people in America. Yes lock them up oh shoot them all with water hose to get them off the street. You Fil-Am that join them in the march, don’t have any “BRAINS” At all, your “BRAINS” is up your rear end. Look your in my country not your country Philippines that you can do dumb things. So Fil-Am watch out what you doing, we watching you and I for one true American don’t like it.
