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.

SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed

A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.

A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.

The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.

14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.

It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.

The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.

Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:

Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.

Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
