Saturday, City of Dallas, City Hall. Begins at 10 ends at 3.
This President’s Day Weekend, 2017, join In Solidarity as we unite to march against President Donald J. Trump’s unconstitutional, and wholly un-American ban on immigrants and refugees in the United States of America.
On Saturday, February 18th, we will stand together and march and rally in order to oppose this selective ban on immigrants and refugees trying to obtain legal entry and safe asylum in the U.S. As many of us here know, refugees, on average, face anywhere from two to three years of vigorous and arduous screenings from top U.S. intelligence agencies, including the FBI, CIA, and the Department of Homeland Security. These people ,the vast majority of whom are women and children, pose less of a threat to American’s safety than homegrown terrorists disillusioned with the government. President Trump’s executive order barring the entry of immigrants and refugees from certain countries, under the pretense of “protecting national security”, is both highly questionable and extremely counter-productive: these orders not only serve to further marginalize and disenfranchise innocent men, women, and children, but they also serve the dual purpose of acting as a means of fueling propaganda for terrorist groups to further promote the idea that the U.S. is leading a war against Islam.
It is time for us stand up, raise our voices high and show our brothers and sisters, not only our Muslim brothers and sisters, but of all races or religions, that we do not agree with the xenophobic and bigoted direction in which our country is headed. America was built upon the backs of immigrants and it THRIVES because of immigrants.
We will march from Dallas City Hall plaza to the JFK Memorial Plaza (on Main and Commerce streets) at 10AM, where we will then hold a benefit rally to stand in solidarity with our immigrant and refugee brothers and sisters. Food trucks will be on location, and half of all proceeds will be donated to In Solidarity, which will turn around and donate them to numerous organizations throughout the DFW, such as CAIR-DFW, the IRC-Dallas, Refugee Services of TX and the Refugee Advocacy Group.
