Quotes

Chow said he was told the police were still gathering evidence. "They said they will release us without any conditions. However, if they find enough evidence in future they will charge us."
Rev. Linda Jaramillo, the first Latina national officer of the United Church of Christ, stated, "The crisis surrounding our country’s immigration system has reached a breaking point and now, more than ever, faith leaders need to stand together and make our voices heard. Whether they are fathers and mothers here to provide better lives for their families, or young children escaping violence and persecution in their homelands, we need our government to act with compassion and treat those coming to our country with dignity and respect. The United Church of Christ is proud to be among the hundreds of supporters and advocates ascending on our nation’s capital, and I hope our government’s leadership hears our call for justice.”"
"Where I'm from, the jobs ain't nothing compared to the jobs over here" said Aleman. He said drug gangs harass his relatives in El Salvador
"We are gathered here to make our voices heard," the Rev. John McCollough said in a prayer service before the arrests. "We are here to pray for this president, our President Obama, to ask him to lose the bonds of injustice and let the oppressed go free. Si se puede!"
