Undocumented LGBTQ People to Rally at ICE Headquarters to Raise Awareness Toward Human Rights Abuses
Tomorrow at noon, the largest gathering of undocumented Queer and Trans people will rally in front of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters in Washington, D.C. for Operation “Break the Cage” to expose ICE’s alleged human rights violations against those undocumented in the LGBT community.
Carlos Padilla the Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project’s Coordinator said: “With more than 80 countries around the world criminalizing same-sex sexual acts, and many more countries who offer no institutionalized government protections based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, many like myself, have made and continue to make the difficult survival decision to leave our home countries and come to the United States.” He continued: “Detention and deportation is bad for everyone, specially for our LGBTQ communities. Yet, the Department of Homeland Security and those departments whom they oversee which includes Immigration And Customs Enforcement (ICE) & U.S. Customs And Border Protection have failed to adequately protect our vulnerable communities and have further placed trauma and violence under their administration. Which is why on May 27, we break the cage.”

On May 9, 2012, in an exclusive interview with ABC News, President Barack Obama boldly stated: “It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” At the time, only seven states issued marriage licenses to gay couples. Now, 37 (and counting), US states have marriage equality. Obama’s landmark announcement made history, and also triggered a ripple effect throughout the world. Since then, eight more countries around the world (Brazil, France, England/Wales, Luxembourg, Ireland, New Zealand, Scotland, Uruguay) have legalized same-sex marriages, not only giving gay couples the right to exchange vows but also inherently declaring their home countries as safe destinations for the LGBT community. The other countries where same-sex marriage is legal are: Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland (starting in 2017), Iceland, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden.
