Portland, ME– On Sunday, November 1, 2020, TPS families held a press conference to welcome the famous bus known as “La Libertad” as it stopped in Portland, Maine on the “Road to Justice,” the nationwide bus tour led by TPS holders in response to the ninth circuit court of appeals  decision on Ramos v. Nielsen lawsuits.

With just days before the election, the event was held to send a message to legislators and US Citizens about the importance of November 3rd, and its impact on the immigrant community; particularly the 400,000 families who are at risk of being separated.

The Following statements were made: 

“I have been on this journey because I have been in this country for the last 30 years and throughout this time, I have contributed to this country with my hard work. I ask that you please think of the sacrifices immigrants have made and please go out and vote against the injustices who threaten to deport us.”Benjamin Zepeda, Salvadoran TPS Holder, “Road to Justice” Rider 

“I just want to let you know how important immigrants have been during these hard times. We drive the buses, pick your food, and deliver your necessities. We make this country run so please think about us, think about my family and go out and Vote Against Hate!” Sofia Morales, Daughter of Salvadoran TPS Holders, “Road to Justice” Rider
