OC DREAM Team to Hermandad Mexicana: Drop Our Logo From Your Fliers!

Divisions within the immigrant rights movement are nothing new. Mega marchas in Los Angeles became fragmented over the years with different organizations and coalitions having demonstrations at different times and places. Here too in SanTana, May Day rallies have succumbed to the same dynamic. Who's marching at what time and where to again?

When President Barack Obama (aka the Deporter-in-Chief) announced his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy in June, it came as DREAM activists pressured the administration by courageously risking arrest and deportation as they staged sit-ins at Obama for America offices in numerous cities across the nation.

Now that the terms of eligibility have been laid out, DACA clinics and applications have become grounds for a flier war in SanTana with the Orange County DREAM Team issuing a public statement demanding that Hermandad Mexicana Latinoamericana remove their logo from distributed fliers soliciting applications at local offices.
