Emergency Rally! Elvira Arellano Arrested in Los Angeles!

Emergency Protest Against the Los Angeles Arrest of Elvira Arellano!
8 pm at the Downtown Federal Building
300 North Los Angeles St

Elvira Arellano, who has been in sanctuary in a Chicago church for more
than a year with her young son Saul, was arrested at the Los Angeles
church where she spoke last night. As she was leaving on a trip to speak
in San Jose, presumed ICE agents surrounded the van she was riding in and
carried out the arrest, leaving Saul frightened and crying.
Arellano had plans to appear in Washington, D.C. to spread the word of her
situation. The U.S. government threat to deport her led her to seek refuge
in the Chicago church a year ago, and she became a national symbol for
epidemic of deportations currently being carried out by ICE which are
splitting thousands of parents and children.
