Organized Communities Against Deportations gathered in front of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in downtown to advocate the closure of detention centers and change of immigration policies. The participants, including Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago Religious Leadership Network on Latin America, were holding posts and chanting to fight for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to treat each human being equally. Several speakers shared their personal experience in detention centers, and they exposed the poor condition they were detained in.
