Community Members Rally for Removal of Border Patrol Checkpoint

On Sunday, December 8th, 2013 community members from Arivaca AZ marched two miles down Arivaca Rd. to deliver a petition to the United States Border Patrol, calling for the immediate removal of the checkpoint on Arivaca Rd. Arivacans and their supporters from Amado, Tubac, Green Valley, Tucson and the surrounding communities converged on the checkpoint from either side to rally for its removal. To read more about Arivaca’s anti-checkpoint campaign and to sign the community petition visit: phparivaca.org.


Bring Them Home: Lulu Martinez Checking in from Mexico City

Lulu Martinez is one of the 9 undocumented activists who crossed the border to visit their families in Mexico. Now they are fighting to come back home.

The Obama administration has created a deportation machine resulting in the destruction of over 1.7 million lives, and the devastating separation of those families by the border. Those 1.7 million people are not lost and forgotten; rather, they are people who deserve to have the choice to return to their home in this country. While we fight to dismantle the system of continued deportations, we must also fight to bring our community home.
