Immigration Rights Activists in Oakland Announce Caravan to Bakersfield

Immigration rights activists used the entrance to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Francisco to announce a motorcade to protest immigration system injustices. Representatives from the Black Alliance for Just Immigration and other community groups will leave from Oakland's Glenn Dyer detention facility tomorrow. Around 75 activists from the Bay Area will travel to Mesa Verde, a detention center in Bakersfield. There, in collaboration with other organizers, a multi-racial community of activists will converge to “chant down the walls.”
