Did You Know?

• The border has been extended to a 100 MILE WIDE zone around the entire United States.
• DHS Checkpoints are being set up inland in states across the country.
• DHS agents are being permitted by Amtrak & Greyhound to board trains and buses when they come within 100 miles of the border for the purpose of checking the immigration status of passengers.
• Amtrak & Greyhound DO NOT notify passengers of this risk.

Join us for a prayer service in solidarity with immigrants and a rally to protest Amtrak and Greyhound’s cooperation with DHS!
We will also be leafleting inside and around Penn Station to warn passengers of the risk of immigration searches.

How does it affect immigrants when DHS conducts its checks? Just show your ID, demonstrate that you're an immigrant, and you're home free...right? I mean of COURSE it's annoying..(ALL such checks are)..but it's annoying to ALL of us, not just immigrants.

The ONLY people who should be worried are the illegals themselves...their presence is what caused these checks; therefore maybe the should be worried about the disdain of those legally here, having to undergo 'hassles'.

Absolutely! Of course we know who “immigrants” really are.
