Lights for Liberty: Newark, NJ

Essex County Democrats take more than $40 million in blood money from ICE to hold the prisoners of its racist nativist rampage, keeping them in the polluted industrial district of Newark, a self-professed “sanctuary” city. New Jersey Democrats like Cory Booker are afraid to speak out against this, beholden as he is to high-end fundraisers run by Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo, who signed the contract with ICE in 2011.

So we need to CLOSE ALL ICE camps, and let the Dems know that the quiet complicity they perfected under Obama is not good enough.

DSA is proud to co-host this protest with SOMA Action, First Friends of NJ & NY, and AFSC Immigrant Rights Program as part of the national Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps.
