July 12th is being called for as a national day of action to close the migrant and refugee camps that have been created along the US-Mexico border and inside the interior, and to let all the migrants and refugees into the country with protected status. Actions are being organized by a coalition of migrant and refugee rights groups in different cities across the country. We are calling on all who are opposed to the repression of migrants and refugees and the existence of concentration camps to organize or join an action.
