Pilgrimage to the TX Governor's Mansion

Pilgrimage to the TX Governor's Mansion

Join us on a three-day pilgrimage from the Hutto Detention Center to the Governor’s Mansion in Austin as we speak out and demand that Gov. Abbott meet with the immigrant families he has harmed in his opposition to immigration relief.

The pilgrimage will begin on Nov. 19 and end on Nov. 21 with 5,000 people rallying at noon at the Governor’s mansion. We will demand that Gov. Abbott stop playing politics with the lives of immigrant families.

As attorney general, Abbott led the 26-state lawsuit against the implementation of President Obama’s executive order expanding DACA and DAPA.

November marks the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s executive action on immigration.

Texas is home to nearly 2 million undocumented immigrants and estimates suggest that 750,000 would be eligible for relief from deportation under DAPA.

We are asking that you join us to send a clear and strong message that the majority of Texans and many elected officials stand with immigrant families and demand that Greg Abbott do the same.

You can help in one of two ways.

On Nov. 21 you can meet us at our offices, 5604 Manor Rd., Austin at 9 a.m. and march the five miles with us to the Governor’s mansion. Or you can meet us at noon at the Governor’s mansion, 1010 Colorado St., Austin 78701.
