Undocubus Visits Austin: Undocumented and Unafraid

The Undocubus visited Austin on August 3rd as part of their cross-country tour exposing the unjust immigration policies of the United States. The undocumented immigrants of the bus left Phoeniz where they have been part of the campaign to remove Sheriff Joe Arpaio from power.

Allies and supporters in Austin held a rally in solidarity with the Undocubus at our Sheriff Greg Hamilton's office. Sheriff Hamilton, like Sheriff Arpaio, uses the "Secure Communities" program in his jail which collaborates with ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) to send suspected undocumented immigrants to immigration prison and deportation. The demonstrators called on Sheriff Hamilton to end "Secure Communities" in Travis County.

The following day, members of the Undocubus held a teach-in with Texans United For Families and the Hutto Visitation Program on Breaking the Isolation of Immigrant Detention.
