Holiday Singing for Immigrants at the ICE Detention Center with Buddhist Peace Fellowship

Portland ICE Detention Center, 4310 SW Macadam
4310 SW Macadam Ave
Portland, OR 97239, US (map)



Here's a new reason to go singing at mid-day on Christmas Eve. ICE wrecks the holiday and breaks up families by detaining immigrants at the ICE office on SW Macadam before sending them to detention facilities at NORCOR or Tacoma. As a statement of solidarity, join us on Christmas Eve day at noon, at the Southwest corner of the ICE building. Bring signs supporting immigrants.

We invite people of all faiths, no faith, and agnostics to join us as we sing Feliz Navidad, Jingle Bells, Cielito Lindo, and other songs. Alternative lyrics will be available for singing to some melodies that may be familiar. If you're not into singing, come listen and stand in silent vigil, with respect for the suffering caused by US immigration policies.
