Stop The Raids On Agricultural Workers

Immigrant agricultural workers and their families are valuable members of our rural communities and the nation's economy. They belong here. We demand that the Trump Administration stop the raids on meatpacking plants, farms and other agricultural facilities.

Why is this important?

The Trump administration is escalating their attacks on small town immigrants working in the agricultural industry.

On April 5, 2018, Trump officials arrested 97 immigrants at a meat-processing plant in rural Tennessee. It was one of the largest workplace raids since President George W. Bush was in office.

Recently, the Trump Administration stormed John Collins' dairy farm in upstate New York without a warrant. They cuffed him and destroyed his phone after seven officers came onto his property and several went into his milk house without permission. The officers detained one of his workers, who had documents to work on the farm, pinning the man up against the window in the process.

These raids are absolutely devastating for small towns. They destroy our agricultural economy and they separate families.

Please join with us and demand that the Trump Administration stop their raids.

The only way whites would work in the fields is if another dust bowl appeared. Most people don't understand what it takes to get food to the table. Let's have a workers gree...
  • Stop harassing people who work with food. Harass Wall Street and the Banks.
