Description

Join PIRC members and friends to go to The Dalles to stand together in vigil with the Gorge ICE Resistance to say to NORCOR prison "ICE OUT OF NORCOR" .

9:45 AM: Meet up in SE Portland at Ascension Catholic Church parking lot (743 SE 76th Ave) to leave at 10 AM Carpools will go from there to NORCOR Prison in The Dalles: 201 Webber St, The Dalles, OR 97058

2 Noon to 1:00 PM: Rally in front of NORCOR.

NORCOR is publicly owned detention facility. It is funded through 4 counties. As a way to increase revenue, NORCOR leases beds to ICE for immigrants in detention. This is in violation of the OR Sanctuary Law which states that OR state resources should not be used to support or aid Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) activities.

Immigrant detainees report the conditions at NORCOR are terrible. They have held 2 hunger strikes to get basic privileges such as milk, hot meals, blankets for the cold temperatures inside the facility, shoes (they are only issued sandals), family visits (currently denied to immigrant detainees), and prompt health care. The prison has only granted minimal improvements in conditions and not acted in good faith to promises made.

Every day of the week, the Gorge ICE Resistance holds a vigil to say ICE OUT OF NORCOR. Let's join them to support the call for IMMIGRANT JUSTICE--NO IMMIGRANT PRISONS. ICE OUT OF NORCOR.
