On the Providence, Rhode Island ICE raids and community response. [Italiano]

7/15/2008
Over 150 community members rallied at the ICE office in downtown Providence where many immigrants were held after a raid today. More than 30 janitorial workers were at several State buildings.

The 'La Red de Defensa' rapid response network set up by the Olneyville Neighborhood Association, went into affect, calling out hundreds of migrant people, union members, community groups, clergy and progressive individuals from all over the Providence area.

The protestors made human blockades at the exits of the facility, using direct action to delay and resist the transport of the imprisoned immigrant people. We made a strong show of community power and indignation to fascistic immigration policy.

We will continue to stand together to resist the criminalization of migrant people! Stay alert for updates on how to help bring justice for the detainees, and continue to resist the criminalization of immigrant people.

No One is Illegal!

ICE is the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. It is a fairly new acronym, but I've seen it frequently of late. Best I can tell, it is under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security, another recent invention.

The US has a huge number of recent immigrants at this time, many of whom are not officially citizens. ICE is charged with the peculiar form of law enforcement for that portion of the population.

It's not so much that many of the recent immigrants aren't citizens that makes the situation interesting, it's the fact that many of the immigrants have failed to ask permission of The State to move. Which I think rather cool of them myself.

Coyote: I don't understand what you mean.

Coyote - It's less a question of failing to ask permission in an open act of defiance, so much as a recognition of the futility of going through the legal channels of gaining citizenship. it is a prohibitively long and expensive process, which necessarily biases the immigration system in favor of people from rich (white) countries and against those who are less fortunate.
