Immigration Detention

Posted by Alexander Carl | Jul 01, 2019 | 0 Comments

On Sunday, June 30, 36 Jewish immigration activists out of an estimated 200 participants were arrested protesting outside an ICE detention facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey. According to Democracy Now, the protest was organized by Never Again Action. It called for an immediate end to ICE raids, deportations and immigrant prisons.

            On the GoFundMe set up to cover the cost of legal fees for the arrested individuals, the group wrote, "As Jews, we've been taught to never let anything like the Holocaust happen again. Now, with children detained in unacceptable conditions, ICE raids targeting our communities, and people dying at the border while seeking safety in the US, we are seeing the signs of a mass atrocity. We refuse to wait and see what happens next." Holocaust allusions were present at the protest as well; one photo shows a young woman holding a sign that reads, "Jews Against ICE Say Never Again Para Nadie, Never Again For Anyone."
