Italian Migrants Sew Mouths Shut In Protest

"It is hard to imagine how desperate things would have to be to take a sewing needle and fishing wire and stitch one’s own mouth shut. But that is exactly what more than a dozen migrants, who are being held in Ponte Galeria immigrant reception center on the outskirts of Rome, did last week as a sign of protest. “They are just asking for a response to end their desperation, to be reunited with their families in countries in the world where the governments are more democratic to guarantee their rights,” wrote two migrants known only as “Adil” and “Lassad,” trying to explain why they and others resorted to such a drastic step. They claim that they have been kept incarcerated in poor conditions for more than two months with no word on their asylum applications.”

UPDATE: 2,600 Walk Out in Support of N. Miami Valedictorian

dreamactivistfl:

National media has been watching closely the case of the Pelaez siblings. Yesterday we reported the case of Daniela Pelaez, the North Miami High School valedictorian who is along with her sister is facing deportation to Colombia. Today, students, faculty, and staff from North Miami walked out of the high school in order to show their support for Daniela and her sister Dayana. 2,600+ people were present at the protest for Daniela, among them was Superintendent of Miami-Dade School Alberto Carvalho who had to say a few words regarding the deportation of the Pelaez sisters:

“Over my dead body will this child be deported,”

The Urban Institute has estimated that there are close to 192,000 undocumented students that would benefit from the Dream Act within the state of Florida, and Daniela Pelaez is just one of these thousands of students who continue to be victims of our broken immigration system. Meanwhile, Immigration Customs Enforcement has issued the following statement:

“As Daniela and Dayana Pelaez have reserved the right to appeal an immigration judge’s decisions ordering them to return to Colombia, ICE will not take any action against them while they pursue additional legal options. Upon conclusion of’ their appeal, ICE will review this matter to determine whether an exercise of discretion is warranted. Overall, ICE is focused on smart, effective immigration enforcement that prioritizes the removal of criminal aliens, recent border crossers and egregious immigration law violators, such as those who have been previously removed from the United States.”

The Pelaez siblings were scheduled to meet today with Representative Rivera, the sponsor of the hugely controversial ARMS Act. We will keep you posted on further developments as we receive them. Support Daniela and her sister by signing the this petition.
