Taqueria Sunday – Help Raise Funds for the #Buffalo25

Back in the fall of 2016 a couple of local Mexican restaurants were raided due to the practice of employing undocumented workers. Since that time, a number of the workers have remained in Buffalo fighting extradition. Aside from the time and money that go into the immigration case battles, these workers are unemployable, which means that they are not able to afford to pay for simple cost of living expenses, such as food and rent. 

We invite you to join us for a day of food, cheer, community and solidarity with the#Buffalo25!

In order to help out these lost souls (known as the #Buffalo25), the community has come together in a number of instances to help raise funds for the workers and their families.

On Sunday, April 9, supporters are invited to rally around this cause in the form of an event called Taqueria Sunday. This is your chance to fill your belly with a medley of tacos*, including bean, and barbacoa (slow cooked beef). 

Buffalo is called The City of Good Neighbors for a reason. So far, the community has gone to great lengths to support the #Buffalo25, and will continue to do so.

    These comments are going to get interesting, especially with the Buffalo News tightening up their paywall.

    Who’s going to be making the tacos, the #Buffalo25?

  • Yup

    You want contributions from local citizens (some which are legal immigrants that had to wait and work to become citizens while others just walked in) to pay for the legal fees of those in our country illegally? Up is down, black is white, the world has gone mad

    Hmmm. I wonder if I wandered into Mexico illegally if they would throw a fundraiser to help pay for my bad choices.
