New York- WHAT: On Valentine’s Day, New York Immigration Coalition will host a rally to stand up for immigrant communities who are under attack by President Trump’s cruel and unjust executive orders, which have caused fear and anxiety about deportations and travel bans across the country.

In a rally called “Love Fights Back”, NYIC calls on New Yorkers to convene at Foley Square to show their love and solidarity for immigrant communities, and to vow to protect these communities currently under attack.

WHY: Over the weekend, the New York Immigration Coalition released breaking information about Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operations in New York. In a statement released by Secretary Kelly on Monday, ICE confirmed that 680 people were arrested in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio and New York City. While ICE claims they are conducting “routine, targeted operations”, we see the beginnings of a ramp-up in arrests, detentions and deportations that is extremely concerning. These actions do not help make us safer - and instead tear families apart, hobble our economies, and corrode the bonds of trust that tie New Yorkers together. These enforcement actions occur at the same time as President Trump is now considering new options to impose a new immigration travel ban.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 14th at 6 p.m.
LOCATION: Foley Square, 111 Worth St
