'TPD is Doing it Again': Press Conference on the Deportation of Moisés Aparicio

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 9:57 AM

Today at noon, a press conference will take place at 317 W. 23rd St., regarding the deportation case of Moisés Aparicio, who was stopped by Tucson Police Department on Saturday, March 23. Aparicio has three children and his wife is pregnant with their third child.

Press release details here:

Eight weeks ago, the case of René Meza Huerta received national and international attention when Sunday February 17th he and his family were pulled over by the Tucson Police Department (TPD). TPD called Border Patrol to detain the René and community organizer Raúl Alcaraz Ochoa, intervened and placed himself beneath the Border Patrol vehicle.

Eight weeks later, TPD is doing it again. On Saturday March 23, TPD officers pulled over another family and detained a hard-working father and Tucson resident of 10 years. They called Border Patrol, allegedly enforcing SB 1070 and thus separating a father from his 3 children and 7 month preganant wife. Moisés is now in deportation proceedings.

The Tucson community demands that SB 1070 be revoked, detentions and deportations be halted, and that no more family separations take place. Local police are causing family trauma.

Alma Hernández of Corazón de Tucson, who herself experienced detention and separation from her three young children, shared; "We must end this attack on families. Detentions and deportations are destroying our community." We want dignity, equality, family unity, and freedom from criminalization.
