Southwest teachers march for immigrant rights in San Diego

Southwest teachers joined thousands of advocates at San Diego’s Waterfront Park in support of immigrants and refugees. Educators, who continue to support safe schools for every child, rallied for speeches and marched downtown to affirm their belief that all students have a right to a public education.

Advocates used their platform to call for San Diego Mayor Faulconer to declare San Diego a Sanctuary City. While SD has the busiest border crossing in the world, Mayor Faulconer has taken no action to protect immigrants against Trump’s policies.
