The NEA will publish a call in NEA publications for an end  to the deportation of refugees to Iraq and will publicly support efforts to prevent their deportation. The NEA will support organizing a demonstration at the Iraq embassy and help fund buses to that demonstration to demand that Iraq cease issuing 24-hour travel documents to make the deportation of Iraqi refugees by the Trump administration possible.  

Rationale/Background

In June 2017, ICE detained hundreds of Iraqi nationals across the U.S. These refugees are now being  told to report to ICE to be deported. These deportations are a death sentence. We cannot let this happen.
