|6/28: STATEMENT OF LA FAMILIA LATINA UNIDA/SIN FRONTERAS AND ADALBERTO UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

STATEMENT OF LA FAMILIA LATINA UNIDA/SIN FRONTERAS AND ADALBERTO UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
BY ELIVRA ARELLANO, EMMA LOZANO AND REV. COLEMAN
June 28, 2007
We remain strong in our faith. The Congress is still the Congress, the President is still the President. They still have the time and the power to fix the broken law.
But the political leaders of this nation should know that we ARE STRONG in our faith. If the democrats and the republicans cannot summon the courage to pass the broken law we will not sit quietly and see our families and our children cut to pieces on the broken pieces of that broken law.
We demand an immediate moratorium on all raids, deportations and separation of families until the broken law is fixed. We call for a mass witness of the families and the children in Washington D.C. on July 17th. We will confront the leaders of both parties and the President. We will also at that time demand an emergency hearing in the Supreme Court of our request for a moratorium on deportations and separation of families.
We also demand a “moratorium on hate” in the media. The media has allowed those who represent a minority in this country to poison the debate. We demand that CNN lead the way by taking Lou Dobbs out of prime time and we will boycott those companies, like Comcast and Menards, which advertise on the Lou Dobbs hour.
If the government will not act, we will act. We will give them until August 15th to revive and pass comprehensive immigration reform. In the meantime we will prepare our campaign of resistance and non-cooperation.
Let them know that if they fail in their responsibilities we will not fail in our resistance. We will begin now to prepare a massive campaign of non-violent resistance and non-cooperation aimed at bringing this government and this economy to a halt.
While we prepare, we will pray for a nation whose leaders of both parties have failed them. While we prepare we will continue to put the witness of the love of our families and the innocence of our children in the face of the campaign of hate.
While we prepare, we will pray for our families and our children. We will pray,…we will march on Washington----and we will prepare.
