Caravan supporters arrive in San Diego after 144 mile march from Los Angeles
As part of an effort to welcome and express solidarity with the Refugee Caravan arriving at the San Ysidro Port of Entry this weekend, activists from all over the country initiated a 144-mile, 8-day march by foot that began in Los Angeles on April 22 and will conclude on Sunday April 29th.
Known as the March Without Borders, this procession of more than 20 full-time caravaners has already passed through Orange County and entered into San Diego County as of Thursday.
In the words of María, a March Without Borders participant from Boston, “the fight of refugees is my fight: as an undocumented immigrant in this country, I know how much feeling supported can uplift your spirit in a time when we are under attack. As Trump meets the refugees with guns and terror, we will meet the refugees with open and fearless hearts. Su lucha es mi lucha.”
The March Without Borders madee a stop at the Centro Cultural de la Raza in Balboa Park for a press conference on Saturday at 1:00 pm. From there, they marched to Chicano Park for a rally and be greeted by our communities.
