NH May Day Rally to Protect Immigrant Rights

May 1, 2007


As the federal government becomes more aggressive in hunting down undocumented immigrants, opposition to harsh enforcement measures is growing among faith, labor, and human rights groups. Immigrants and supporters will rally in Manchester today to draw attention to the human costs of immigration enforcement, and to call for reforms that protect domestic security while respecting human rights. Event organizer Eva Castillo with the New Hampshire Immigration Project says the goal is to stop harsh enforcement actions while lawmakers resolve the immigration issue.

“We're going to have a rally to tell President Bush to stop deportations while the comprehensive immigration reform is being discussed, and to keep our families together.”

Castillo adds that the event will call on America to live up to its own standards.

“The U.S. has always said that this is the land of equality and justice, so we expect the government to act accordingly to what it preaches to the rest of the world.”

The event takes place at 4 p.m. in Manchester's City Hall plaza. It's one of several rallies planned nationwide.
