    J20: Close the Camps A Call to Demonstrate against ICE on Inauguration Day

    With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, immigrants’ lives in ICE detention have become even more precarious, and the medical neglect they face even more deadly. Detained immigrants have courageously faced the horrors of COVID-19 inside prison walls for nearly a year, organizing unprecedented protests and hunger strikes in response.

    Immigrant detainees are doing their part. We must do ours. Solidarity is our weapon.

    If we do not come together to fight against the detainment, separation, deportation, and medical neglect of immigrants, the world will be no better off under the Biden administration than it was under Trump.

    Join us on January 20, Inauguration Day, to let our undocumented brothers and sisters know that we will not stop fighting for their release.

    This is a call to organize wherever you are, inviting anyone who dreams of a world without borders to come together and build it. We issue it in solidarity with the call made by the Brown Berets for January 20 to simultaneously turn back the “insurgency of Proud Boys” and “free our children in cages.” On January 20, show up at ICE detention centers, at ICE field offices, and at the police stations that cooperate with ICE.

    We’ll welcome back children and families as they’re released, or else we’ll fight to see that their separation and detention comes to an end.

    Invite your friends, families, and co-workers.
    Wear a mask.
    Make noise. Bring tents. Think ambitiously about how to free the detainees held near your community.
    Come prepared.

    For our immigrant neighbors who are still in cages.
    For our immigrant neighbors who live in fear.
    For our immigrant neighbors yet to arrive.
    Close the Camps!
