Otay Mesa Detention Center Car Rally
San Diego Organizers/Activists/Humanitarian Aid Workers call for the support of the San Diego community in protesting the abuses of ICE Detention Centers. On Tuesday, May 10th, another life was tragically lost in these death-camps as ICE has taken no protections or precautions against the spread of COVID-19. Choung Woong Ahn, a 74 year old South Korean man, has been in the United States since 1988 and was considered high risk because of his health. Yet, after a coalition of attorneys sought bond for his release, ICE rejected these urgent requests.
This is the 3rd death in ICE custody since the Covid-19 pandemic began.
Car Rally to urge ALL migrants be released from ALL ICE Detention Centers and ICE, as a governmental agency, to be defunded and abolished. Protection is NOT deporting migrants! Protection is the abolition of detention and deportation!
We should not stand idly by as immigrant siblings die!
