Miami, FL –  On October 24, 2018 at 11:00am ET, local immigration advocates and elected officials will gather at a press conference to welcome Temporary Protected Status (TPS) TPS holders on the “Journey for Justice” bus tour to Miami. The press conference will lift up the voices of TPS holders, their families, and advocates as they discuss  how TPS has saved lives as well as the importance of finding a permanent legislative solution for legal residency.

 

WHO:

Christina Pontieux, U.S. Citizen Child of TPS Holders

Rony Ponthieux, TPS Holder from Haiti

Elva Castillo, TPS Holder from Nicaragua

TPS Holders from the “Journey for Justice” Bus Tour (Honduras, El Salvador)

Maria Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Florida Immigrant Coalition (FILC)

WHERE: Little Haiti Cultural Center; 212 N.E. 59 Terrace, Miami, Florida 33137

 

Background: The Journey for Justice bus tour is traveling across over 50 cities in a span of 12-weeks. It consists of over 50 TPS holders, from various countries that are currently designated TPS – El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, Nicaragua, Sudan, Nepal and Somalia – and will join local committees and collectives that have come together to participate in the growing national call to keep families together and fight for permanent legal residency. The goal of the caravan is to lift the collective voices against the termination of TPS, the cruel dehumanization of families at the southern border and against the criminalization of immigrants throughout the United States.
