Crossing A Border is NOT a Crime, but a Civil Offense - Yet Families are being Torn Apart because of Border Patrol's activities at the Regional Transportation Center

All Those Who Show Up will Get an Attractive "United Nation's Blue" Wrist Band that says "Justice for Immigrants"

Bring a flag, help distribute "Know Your Rights" literature

We will supply you with a sign

Continue for Directions:
Children are welcome but must stay on sidewalks (not in street).

Might be wise to bring sunscreen and bottled water, or rain gear if the weather is crummy.

If you can't attend this one, mark your calendar for our July 5 (Independence Day Weekend) rally!

Forward to all your friends - after the rally, go the Regional Market and buy your veggies, remember that in many cases, immigrant workers picked those onions, tomatoes, grapes, broccoli stalks, etc.

Thanks for the info, Janna,

We've gotta watch out though, I've seen our side make this mistake several times now. Unauthorized entry into the United States actually is a crime, a misdemeanor to be exact. It's being illegally present in the U.S., which is what most undocumented migrants are charged with, that is a civil violation.
