Members of the community are hitting the streets once again in solidarity and support of the #Buffalo25, those undocumented workers now facing deportation after a series of federal raids last week. Together, people will be marching as they make their way to the ICE Office to rally for justice - "dignity, not deportation."

Push Buffalo, The Coalition for Economic Justice and local faith leaders are accompanying the remaining workers and their loved ones to their ICE meetings as they await their fate during this time of uncertainty. This rally marks the second one this week. 

Push Buffalo says, these workers taken federal custody have since been detained and placed under monitored supervision, many without their belongings, something the organization is calling unjust.

The march is scheduled to start at 9:45a.m. at Niagara Square, with the rally following at 10:30a.m.
