Video: Portland’s National Fast to say “Not One More Deportation!”

We made this video during the National Fast NOT ONE MORE DEPORTATION in May 2013, in order to call local, national, and international attention to the unjust immigration laws. Thousands of people are detained and deported daily without any sort of criminal record. Their only crime is to look for a better future for themselves and their family in this country. These political prisoners are currently detained in private prisons. People in the video: Abdias has a pending deportation case and has waited more than 6 years. They have prohibited her from working until they clarify her situation. Rosa’s partner was deported later in 2013.

Este video lo hicimos durante la cadena nacional de ayuno NI UNA DEPORTACION MAS en Mayo de 2013, para llamar la atención local, nacional e internacional con las leyes injustas de inmigración. Están deteniendo y deportando a miles de personas diariamente sin tener un record criminal. Su único delito es buscar un futuro mejor para él o ella y a su familia en este país. Estos prisioneros políticos que están detenidos en este momento en las cárceles privadas. En el video habla Abdias, quien está pendiente de su deportación y ha esperado mas de 6 años, le han prohibido trabajar hasta que se aclare su situación. También habla Rosy, cuya pareja fue deportado después.
