Protest vs Trump's Attacks on TPS Recipients

On Saturday, January 13, about 800 people rallied and marched through downtown Los Angeles to protest the Trump/Pence regime’s recent decision to rescind TPS (Temporary Protective Status) protection for hundreds of thousands of immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and other immigrants whose TPS protection awaits a decision. The Trump/Pence regime’s Homeland Security Department’s recent cruel termination of TPS for 263,000 Salvadorans, national 7-Eleven store raids, and Trump’s rabidly white supremacist “shithole countries” comments were the immediate sparks for the protest.

The action included immigrant rights groups, unions, students, young professionals and a number of Spanish-speaking immigrant families. Refuse Fascism activists were part of this, and energetically contributed to the action by promoting the necessity to intensify this struggle to stop this fascist regime’s attacks on immigrants and the understanding that this struggle must be consciously linked to a movement to drive out this entire fascist regime. Along with a range of organizations, numerous people who’d had TPS protection spoke movingly from the mic.
