Maru Vs. ICE: 2nd Court Date [Seattle]
May 22, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
At the end of December, immigrant activist Maru Mora Villalpando received a letter from ICE calling for her deportation.
Now, on Tuesday May 22nd, Maru will go before an immigration judge for the second hearing in her deportation case. Typically, people have three hearings before they are issued an order of removal or are detained.
Maru is a fierce and tireless truth-speaker who has put her life on the line in the fight to end detention and deportation. She is clearly being targeted for her powerful activism, and she intends to continue fighting.
We are asking you to be there with Maru outside the immigration court building before and during the hearing. Please bring your signs (“Defend the Defender”, “ICE Hands Off Maru”) and your friends.
Come early at 12:30 to hear from Maru before she goes inside. Starting at 1:00, a rally will take place outside the building while we wait for Maru to emerge and update us on what happens in court.
