On Thursday restaurant owners in Philadelphia are preparing for hundreds of Immigrant families to object the recent raids performed by Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). A majority of immigrants who come to this country are trying to improve their lives as well as support families who are still waiting back home for their chance of opportunity and happiness.

¿Sería “hipócrita” llamar a Filadelfia una ciudad santuario?

¿Sería “hipócrita” llamar a Filadelfia una ciudad santuario?

Esto es lo que afirman las organizaciones que actualmente trabajan para proteger los derechos de los inmigrantes en la ciudad.

Tras los planes de retirar a familias inmigrantes el día jueves y reportes de oleadas de redadas por parte de la ICE, la pregunta de lo que realmente significa ser una ciudad santuario está en la boca del cañón, mucho más cerca de lo que Harrisburg y Trump la habían colocado.

En un esfuerzo continuo de la gente fuera de la burocracia, Filadelfia verá una demostración física del verdadero impacto que tienen los inmigrantes en la ciudad.

Take your pictures today while you still can. The iconic Love statue will disappear until Summer 2017.

Is it “hypocritical” to call Philadelphia a sanctuary city?

This is what organizations working to protect immigrant rights are saying in Philadelphia.

With plans for a walk-out of immigrant families posed for Thursday and reports of a surge in Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, the question of what a sanctuary city really means is being pushed even farther to the forefront than Harrisburg or Trump could.

It's Valentine's Day! A day where there is a last minute dash to the card store and flower shop so you can tell that special someone that you have not forgotten about them. 

For others, its the first day that begins the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. The City of Philadelphia holds its annual Valentine's Day wedding ceremony on the 6th floor of City Hall for 50 soon-to-be married couples with the help of 10 city judges.
