Tai to join advocates to fight for immigrant rights Saturday, June 30
DOYLESTOWN, June 28 – In her ongoing fight to protect immigrant families, state Rep. Helen Tai, D-Bucks, is joining advocates from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 30 at the old Bucks County Courthouse, 55 W. Court St., for the End Family Detention Doylestown Rally.
“I am appalled that loved ones have been ripped apart at the border and families locked up in cages disguised as detention centers,” Tai said. “We need to stand up to President Trump’s inhumane immigration policies here at home and send a message to Washington that America doesn’t represent such hate.”
Since officially taking office earlier this month, Tai has already championed a push in Harrisburg to reverse Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy, protect children and keep immigrant families together (H.R. 1000), which has received overarching support from her Democratic colleagues.
On Saturday, she will join members of:
Rise Up Doylestown.
Welcoming the Stranger.
The Peace Center.
Tai also plans on speaking at 12:30 p.m. July 4 at Washington Crossing Park for a special reading of the Declaration of Independence.
Those with questions about either event can contact Tai’s office.
