We are initiating a 24-hr, 22-day action in front of the White House, aimed at bringing together immigrants and supporters to fight for our communities. A strong round-the-clock presence starting on August 15th (the five-year anniversary of DACA’s implementation) leading up to September 5th (deadline given by the ten Attorney Generals to President Trump to rescind DACA and potential cancellation of the South Sudan and Sudan TPS program is in early September) is our commitment to put pressure on the White House and Congress to do what it takes to protect DACA and TPS, and promote citizenship for all.
The vigil will commence in the late afternoon of August 15th in front of the White House. NAKASEC, FAN and others will hold constant presence – morning, noon, night and overnight – until September 5. We will also organize daily faith blessings and prayers at 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., as well as conduct orientations and organize teach-ins.
