Highlights from the No to Hate: Immigrants and Refugees Welcome Here Rally

* We demand a radical shift in U.S. immigration policy that recognizes the rights of all people, regardless of where they were born.

* We demand permanent protection for all undocumented immigrants.

* We demand immediate demilitarization of the US-Mexico border, an end to all deportations, and the abolition of ICE, without replacement.

* We demand a world that recognizes the free movement of people, not the free movement of capital.

Migrants from Central America - primarily Honduras - are making their way across Mexico to the US border seeking asylum, driven by poverty and violence. Like other groups of migrants before them, they are traveling in a caravan to keep each other safe and to bring public attention to the conditions they are fleeing and the enormous challenges of migration. Refugees are fleeing from the poverty and violence caused by economic and political US intervention like the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA).

As these migrants make their way north, Republicans have unleashed racist lies about the caravan, violent right-wing militias have vowed to take up arms against the migrants, and President Trump has ordered the armed forces to the border.

Anti-immigrant hate has long been the primary incubator of a deadly far-right movement that has been growing in this country. This is the same far right movement that lead to the deaths of Maurice Stallard and Vickie Jones, two African Americans gunned down by a white racist in a Krogers parking lot in Kentucky two weeks ago, and the 11 victims of Pittsburgs synagogue shooting, targeted both for being Jewish and for their work in support of refugees.

Thousands rallied in support of the migrant caravan and all immigrants, and refugees and all victims of bigotry and state violence. They pledged to fight back against the racist, violent rhetoric and actions of Republicans, and the weak-willed complacency of the Democrats' participation in destructive and repressive immigration policies. They cried out against the deep-rooted imperialism and intervention of the US in Latin America that has forced so many migrants to flee their homes.
