Yesterday, December 19th, the Circle of Protection Toy Giveaway outside the Miramar ICE facility was a huge success! It wouldn’t have been possible without all the donations and support we received, thank you! Nearly $2,500 were raised for grocery gift cards along with countless toys for the children. We spread holiday joy and brought the Miramar Commission their coal.
You can see more picture in our gallery or some news reports on our media tab.
Join the Circle of Protection of Miramar on Wednesday, December 19 at 11 am. We will bring some joy to the kids and parents at #Miramar #ICEFacility!!!
Every day hundreds of immigrants come from all over the state of Florida and must check in to this sinister building of ICE at Miramar, they begin to line up at 4 am and must stand outside in the sun, the cold, the rain, without shelter, lack of access of restrooms or access to food or water.
The Circle Of Protection has been documented, we’ve protested and called the media to denounce and bear witness to shed a light on this. Elected Officials and the city of Miramar just put 3 tents 4 benches and forget about these people… they never show up again.
You can help by donating toys and funds for grocery gifts cards.
Here you have some links where you can Donate so we can buy gift cards for the families

“The fascistic behavior of the U.S. is escalating, while the number of forcibly displaced people in the world is increasing. People in this situation are some of the most vulnerable and powerless on the planet and in many cases have been put there by the actions of the U.S. government. With walls being thrown up around the capitalist heartlands, the world being built before us threatens to be a dystopian horror-show and we can’t afford to be passive in the face of its construction. People labeled as aliens are by definition the most vulnerable among us, and If we remain silent while they’re under attack, the battle lines will shift; the pursuers of brain-dead fascist purity won’t stop– and you’re next. Come join the fight back at this benefit. All monies raised will go to Pueblo Sin Fronteras, working directly with the current refugee caravan in Mexico, and The New Sanctuary Coalition acting in solidarity with them.” – Miami DSA
