Activists Protest Outside National Homeland Security Conference in Manhattan

HeadlineJul 11, 2018

In New York City, dozens of people rallied outside the National Homeland Security Conference, the largest annual gathering of DHS officials and private security contractors, including those profiting off mass deportation and family detention. This is Sarah Olle, one of the protesters.

Sarah Olle: “We are in New York City against the National Homeland Security Conference being here hosted in our city, and to call out Bill de Blasio for being a keynote speaker. He says that he supports our sanctuary city here in New York, but we know that the NYPD continues to collaborate with ICE and target noncitizens who are here in New York.”
