Transcript Concentration Camps of America Members of Hijos del Sol and La Resis- tencia protested deportation of illegal aliens in front of the Correction Corporation of America. The building is a holding center for immigrants waiting to be deported and the average length of stay is approximately three days. They are then returned by bus to their countries. "There are no jobs in my country (Honduras). It's (the economy) is very bad. My dad and sister and brother are there — they have some money, but it does them no good." "I cannot go to school there — I cannot work. So I come here to go to school and work. IVe been here since 1984 so I don't qualify for amnesty. I have American friends who said they would sign for me if I want amnesty, but I no ask them," said Marescio, who declined to give further information on himself. He would not ask his friends to fill in the necessary portion of the amnesty application that requires proof of U.S. residence since 1981. He believes that if it were discovered that they lied for him they would "get in a lot of trouble with the officials." The demonstration was directed at the inmates of the detention center and most of the speeches were in Spanish with translations. "Down with the Simpson-Rodino Act! We're all illegals! Here we are! Here we'll stay! We will not go!" chanted the group that marched with banners and then replaced the words, "Correction Corporation of America" with "Concentration Camps of America." The people inside the center pressed written signs against the tinted windows and their voices could be heard outside, but the press was not allowed within 20 feet of the 50 University of Houston windows. Speakers addressing the inmates urged them not to give up and promised thai there would be help from the outside. "You are our brothers and we will not desert you, the group chanted. "Maybe I would die if I return to my country (El Salvador). They would draft me into the army to fight and I don't want to fight It's better for me now that I have my work card. I can go to school and I can work," said one immigrant who has been recently grant ed a temporary status under the amnestv clause. La Resistencia urged both public and pn vate organizations to hire and shelter inv migrants in defiance of the law. "Through diverse efforts, we must turr these outrageous attacks on those who are launching them by taking the resistance the; face to a whole new political level," saic Travis Morales, spokesperson for La Rests tencia. "May 5 begins a whole new phase of at tacks on immigrants under the Simpson- Rodino Reform and Control Act. This must be met with various forms of determined anc spirited political opposition and resistance.* political atmosphere must be created wne« the government is not able to proceed wit? 'business as usual' in its attacks on lrnmi-' grants. History demands nothing less, saw Morales. « "The year-long period in which the sma^ percentage of undocumented immigran who qualify may apply for amnesty and legalization ended on May 4. The U.S. ko ernment and its INS are methodically P^' paring a much higher level of enforcerne with job site raids, roundups, jailings, tine and deportations," said Morales. , u„ — Lara Schult*
