To prove they are worth keeping here and receiving the same benefits as American citizens, illegal immigrants are plotting a day of civil disobedience, including blocking traffic, at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday.
Tomorrow is our day of action in New York City! Are you ready?
— Movimiento Cosecha (@CosechaMovement) September 4, 2017
According to the Movimiento Cosecha, the group organizing the protest at a private property, “allies participating in the action are refusing to leave the jail until all DACA recipients are released.”
Beginning at 10 a.m., students are expected to walk out of classes to rally and stage a sit-in at the Trump property. They are also being encouraged to shut down the busy New York streets surrounding the property, including 5th Avenue, which are already naturally plagued by busy traffic.
“This fight isn’t just for us– this is a fight to win permanent protection, dignity, and respect for all 11 million undocumented immigrants. It’s a fight to get recognition for the economic power that immigrants have and that this country depends on” the call to action by Movimiento Cosecha reads.
A Facebook event page for the rally and civil disobedience is headlined, “DACA Fights Back: Trump Tower Take Over.”
“If Trump strikes DACA, DACA strikes back!” the Facebook page threatens. According to the page, there are 1,000 people vowing to attend and an additional 4,300 who responded that they are “interested.”
The group hopes that by disrupting traffic and those needing to go to Trump Tower on Tuesday that they will help to “win permanent protection, dignity, and respect for all 11 million undocumented immigrants.”
“We are angry for all the young undocumented immigrants that haven’t turned 16 yet and were waiting to apply for DACA. We are angry, for all the DACA parents that will lose the job that supported their family. We are angry, for all the plans that DACA recipients had that now seem impossible. But we are also strong; and no politician- not Trump, not Paxton- can take that away from us. Our strength and resilience have never depended on a work permit,” said Thais Marques, a spokesperson for Movimiento Cosecha.
On Sunday evening it was reported that President Trump will likely announce on Tuesday that he is ending Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive order that shields roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants from facing deportation. He is expected to provide a six month window for Congress to come up with a solution or compromise regarding the current recipients.
Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
