Protest and Arrest, Local Latinos Planning Immigration Rally in D.C

A group of Iowans traveling to Washington D.C are going in hopes of getting arrested.

Pastor Alejandro Alfaro – Santiz organized congregation members from Las Americas United Methodist Church and community members to make the trip to the White House to rally against deportation, something that has taken several members away from his church.

“They are going to commit civil disobedience and be arrested to put the spotlight on the immigration issue and ask the president to put a stop on deportation.”

The group of nine will leave for D.C at the end of the month. Before leaving, they launched a social media slogan called, “#IowaIsWelcoming,” to counter act Governor Branstad’s comment alluding illegal immigrants aren’t welcomed in Iowa.

Alfaro – Santiz says the Governor’s unwelcoming stance on immigration contrasts the friendly nature of Iowa.

“We want to show a message to Iowa that we are welcoming people.”

A sendoff for the group is Monday at 7pm at Las Americas United Methodist Church in Des Moines.
