Advisory: People Protest Against White House-GOP Betrayal of 2.1 Million Dreamers with Direct Action

WHAT: Trump and Senate Republicans have announced that they will not attach protection for Dreamers to the end-of-year spending bill. As a response, the Korean Resource Center (KRC) will gather with hundreds of Orange County constituents including DACA recipients, immigrant advocates, and allies in front of Congresswoman Mimi Walters’ (R-45) office demanding justice for Dreamers who have been double-crossed by the President and his administration. After multiple failed attempts to meet with Congresswoman Walters, a delegation will return to demand her support of her communities and a clean Dream Act.

Fast and Vigil to Demand Court to Rule on Administrative Relief

5th Circuit Judges are Functionally Acting as Puppets of Anti-Immigrant Politicians

The Korean Resource Center will hold a press conference on Wednesday, October 14 to demand the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to rule on the administrative relief case they has been sitting on for almost a year. NAKASEC, the Korean American Resource and Cultural Center (KRCC), and the Korean Resource Center (KRC) will also pledge to join solidarity fasts, engage in a social media campaign, and lead community conversations in support of the “The Fast to Keep Families Together” - a powerful 9 day fast and vigil starting on October 14th outside the courthouse in New Orleans led by impacted immigrant families and national leaders representing faith, labor, civil rights, and the immigrant community. The administrative relief programs, namely expanded DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents), could keep families together and provide them with temporary protections.
