Maru Mora Villalpando is an undocumented activist and mother who has been directly targeted by ICE for her work fighting against immigrant detention and deportations. Hundreds of supporters gathered in solidarity as she attended her second court hearing with ICE in downtown Seattle this past Tuesday, June 26th.
While she was in her hearing, NWDC Resistance/Resistencia al NWDC and allies put ICE on Trial in front of the ICE and Border Patrol headquarters in Seattle. ICE was found guilty by a jury of the people! Maru returned from her hearing with the encouraging news that her next court hearing is not until 2019 and that she can begin the process of applying for a green card!
The demonstration then took to the streets and joined with our allies protesting the Supreme Court ruling to uphold the constitutionality of the Muslim Ban. No Muslim Ban Ever!
