#Fight4Families: Failed ICE Enforcement

July 22, 2014 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Faith leaders and community members will gather at a press conference to demand that President Obama cancel failed ICE/police collaboration programs such as Secure Communities and 287(g) that are destroying families. These programs have been challenged by local law enforcement leaders who have fought back against the corrosive impact on civil rights and community safety when police and corrections take on the role of immigration enforcement. As the President prepares his administrative relief package, local faith leaders and communities members whose families have been torn apart by these programs will petition: “Me Too, Mr. President; Fight for our Families.” 

Speakers on Tuesday will include leaders from some of the largest and most diverse faith traditions in the region as well as families confronting deportation because of police/ICE collaboration.
