ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN:



Over the past couple of months, a coalition of local organizations have been working on a campaign around the unjust deportation of a local organizer named Siham Tinhinan Byah. On November 7th, she was taken from the Bristol County detention center and in the early morning on December 28 was deported to Morocco with out any of her belongings and without being allowed contact with her 8 year old son, Naseem.



The #justice4Siham campaign has been working to re-unite Siham with her son and work with her in developing the next steps in seeking justice for her and her family. We have worked with Siham directly to develop the following demands:

1. DCF allow Siham to freely communicate with Naseem whenever and however they wish.

2. DCF does not put Naseem up for adoption against Siham’s wishes.

3. DCF help Naseem get a passport so that he can be reunited with Siham.

4. The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families release a public statement against Siham Byah's deportation, and that they end any collaboration with the ICE attacks that are devastating Massachusetts families.

5. Siham Byah be returned to the United States immediately and given the opportunity to present her case for asylum in the United States.

6. ICE immediately stop terrorizing our communities and ripping apart families.
