Deportations are happening. Here you can see the heartbreaking video that a daughter took from the car while her father was being detained. The man was driving his daughters to school and has lived in the country 20 years.
LA Mayor Eric Garcetti spoke out and said, “We want more answers. And we need to make sure that this is not the beginning of a dangerous and dark time here, where people are afraid to go to school, people are afraid to drop their kids off, people afraid to go to work. That would be troubling for our economy and the safety of our streets.”
There were raids in Pasadena over the past few weeks. What can be done to stop this cruel and self-defeating policy?

Deportations are happening and it’s not enough for the mayor to speak out, though POP! would like to see 100 mayors from across the country band together to make a national difference quickly. This means putting pressure on OUR mayor and on City Council. Come learn how. We’ll see you March 18, 3 – 5 PM at the Pasadena Community Jobs Center at 500 N. Lake Ave. 91101.
