Thanks to all who came to a cold winter rally in support of Central American asylum seekers who were tear-gassed by our government. We are a land of immigrants, and we demand that our government and ICE treat asylum seekers humanely. We further demand that our government and ICE follow our own laws and international laws that give asylum seekers the right to apply for asylum.
We plan to follow up this rally with meetings with our Illinois and Iowa Senators and Representatives and local ICE officials.
The rally was organized by Aaron Wagner of Quad Cities Interfaith.
