On this year’s father’s day, family members of individuals currently detained and facing deportation proceedings speak out against ICE’s continued detention and separation of families.

Family members, friends, and allies of parents who are spending father’s day in immigration detention and deportation will gather in front of the Chicago Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office to bring attention to the continued suffering of Chicago families separated by harsh and unfair immigration enforcement practices.

Individuals currently in deportation proceedings and family members of people locked in Chicago-area detention centers, allies and supporters will gather Thursday, June 18th, 11:00 A.M., in front of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Chicago office, 101 W. Congress Parkway.

This weekend, over 34,000 individuals will spend father’s day locked in a detention center away from their children and families in the United States. In Chicago, men like Manuel Roman, will languish in one of the 250 detention facilities set up across the country to detain undocumented immigrants.  Highlighted will be the stories of three Chicago-area fathers currently detained and in deportation proceedings, including Jose Adan Servin who qualifies for a special U-visa but still remains in deportation proceedings at risk of being separated from his U.S. citizen children. Their family members and children will join community members to denounce the continued use of immigrant detention centers to keep families apart in Chicago and across the country.

Organized Communities Against Deportations (OCAD) is a Chicago-based, undocumented led, community group organizing against immigration detention and deportation.
