New York, NY – On February 19, 2018; a group of New Yorkers from Rise and Resist marked Presidents’ Day with a peaceful takeover of Trump Ice Rink in Central Park. Spelling out the word “RESIST” and displaying banners in protest of the president’s immigration policies, the group of New Yorkers took to the ice to protest the cruel and intensifying roundups and deportations of immigrant women, men, and children by I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

“We are here where Trump profits off friends, families and communities to protest this administration’s attack on friends, families and communities”, said Rise and Resist spokesperson Carol Scott. “We are appalled by the actions of I.C.E. and call for an end to the raids and deportations in favor of a just immigration policy.”

Undocumented immigrants come to the United States because of war (often American involved or supported), famine (caused or aggravated by global warming), crime (particularly crime inadvertently caused by the American war on drugs), and the horrendous treatment of women, children, ethnic and religious minorities, and LGBT individuals in many countries. The Trump Administration has made it clear that anyone on the wrong side of immigration law can be hunted down, arrested, detained, and deported, whether or not they committed a serious crime.

There are 11 million undocumented immigrant women, men and children in the United States. 8 million of them – nearly all the adults – are hardworking, contributing members of the American labor force. They should be given a path to citizenship and be allowed to continue as productive, tax paying members of society.
