Philadelphia: Mexican Father of U.S.-Born Children Seeks Sanctuary from Deportation in Church

HeadlineNov 14, 2016

This comes as, in Philadelphia, Mexican immigrant Javier Flores, who is the father of three U.S.-born children, sought sanctuary from deportation in a church and called on President Obama to stop his deportation and others’. Mayors from New York to Seattle have said they won’t cooperate with Trump’s promise to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, even though Trump says he’ll withdraw federal funding from such cities. Grassroots groups in multiple cities are also organizing anti-deportation self-defense networks.
