Description

Join us this Saturday for an #IceResistanceRally on our 90th consecutive rally day, as we stand strong behind the recent action filed against NORCOR! We are gathering folks from all over Oregon and Washington to show NORCOR that we do not approve of the private Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contract they currently hold as it does not reflect the values of the communities they are representing and NORCOR is not set up to be able to provide appropriate services for detainees in the first place.

Immigrant detainees being held here under the contract with ICE have been charged with federal immigration violations which are a civil matter, not criminal. We believe this is in violation of state law (OR 181A.820) and we support the lawsuit filed recently on behalf of local taxpayers which asks an Oregon judge to order NORCOR to end its contract and enjoin NORCOR from entering into similar contracts going forward. We want to see our local officials take a stand and protect all of our friends and neighbors as well as transparency and accountability from NORCOR as they work for us, the public.

We have lots of signs, flags and a couple of banners to share or feel free to bring your own! It is forecast in the 90's so bring sunscreen and some water, we will also have lots of cold water available on hand.
