“We Say Welcome: after three years of exclusion” binational solidarity action
Marking three long years of the US government turning its back on families seeking safety, faith leaders come together to urge US officials to restore a pathway to refuge for women, men and children who have been stuck in danger and uncertainty for months or years. As the Biden Administration and other elected officials publicly acknowledge the end of the pandemic, they continue to keep doors closed to asylum seekers under the pretext of COVID restrictions.
During the event, faith leaders will share the ways they have opened their arms to welcome families seeking safety in their communities, and why their faith inspires them to do so. People waiting in Nogales for access to a fair, humane process will share the obstacles they face while stranded in Mexico, including challenges to acquiring an appointment for processing through the CBPOne App.
Join us on March 21st 1:00pm for a binational solidarity action near the DeConcini Port of Entry.
We will be holding a press conference on Calle Internacional a few blocks west of the DeConcini Port of Entry (Reference point: Ganfer Sociedad Agricola- Carretera Internacional Km 236, Centro, 84118 Cibuta, Son., Mexico.)
Parking recommendations for those crossing to join on the Sonora, Mexico side:
Parking in the afternoon near the port of entry in Mexico is difficult. Instead, you can park at the Burger King on the United States side (located on 47 N Sonoita Ave, Nogales, AZ 85621) or in nearby lots. Prices range from $2-$5 an hour. You can cross easily by foot. Please remember to bring your passport.
