NY Lawyers Rally & March: ICE Out of the Courts


On March 15, 2018,  at 4pm in Foley Square, Legal Aid Attorneys, Public Defenders, Unions and Community Groups came together to speak to the press.

They they marched to the Office of Court Administration to demand Chief Judge Janet DiFiore take immediate action to protect their clients: “ICE OUT OF THE COURTS!”

Their demands focused on DiFiore:After months of protesting, multiple walk-outs and rallies across the city and hours of advocacy, Chief Judge Janet DiFiore has still not heeded the call of New York City’s immigrant communities to prohibit ICE agents from entering NY Courts.

NOT Every one present agreed with this position.

He did get photo bombed at one point.

“This policy of continued cooperation with ICE puts our clients in danger, robs them of their right to due process, and makes the Office of Court Administration complicit in Trump’s horrific mass deportation agenda.”

The time has come to act. #ICEMUSTGO #DUEPROCESSNOW

This protest was hosted by Association of Legal Aid Attorneys – UAW 2325 and ImmigrantDefenseProject.org
