• Help Us Remove Sonia's Ankle Monitor!
    Ankle monitors are restrictive and invasive forms of surveillance. They are yet another tool that ICE employs to monitor and intimidate people who are in deportation proceedings. The use of these monitoring systems are an extension of the for-profit web of corporations that profit off the detention and monitoring of immigrants. Not only is there a complete lack of transparency and accountability for the ways that ICE enforces the use of these monitors but they also pose a health hazard to those who wear them. We want to let local immigration officials know that despite the hatred and xenophobia that Trump signed into law with his most recent executive orders, we will continue to defend members of our community that are under threats of deportation. Sign to let Officer Martinez know that we support Sonia and her family!

  • Tell Mayor Setti Warren to Defy Trump, Defend Newton, & Expand Sanctuary
    Donald Trump just announced executive action that threatens any city that seeks to protect immigrant residents from his deportation machine. What he’s trying to do is roll back the leaps forward we’ve made in recent years but we won’t let him. In 2017, it’s the efforts to defend Black lives and protect migrant rights that make our cities safer, not Trump’s extra enforcement promises. To keep us safe, we need to evolve our local policies to make our cities real sanctuaries for all residents, not cancel them because of the President's latest actions. That means a commitment to separating police from federal immigration enforcement AND addressing the policing that funnels black and other residents to jail and places criminal charges on immigrant residents, making them a target for ICE agents. Tell our mayor and city council to stand up to Trump and take action that doesn't just symbolically defend immigrants, but transforms our city's policies to stop targeting us for imprisonment, risk of removal, and state violence at the hands of police and aggressive immigration agents. The President's threats should be cause to embolden our city leaders, not an excuse to abandon our potential progress.

  • Tell Sheriff Salazar to Defy Trump - Keep ICE out of Bexar County!
    On January 25, 2017 President Trump issued the executive order “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements.” This executive order retracts the previous relationship between local law enforcement agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) forcing federal policy on local communities. The Trump administration will soon contact Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar requesting that he sign a “287(g) Agreement” that deputizes local law enforcement to act as ICE agents enforcing federal laws that amount to an attack on our community. As residents of Bexar County, we are stronger and safer together. No agreements, no bans, we ask Sheriff Salazar to stand with our community and refuse to participate in these harmful programs. -- El 25 de enero 2017 Presidente Trump emitió la orden ejecutiva llamada "Seguridad Fronteriza y Mejores al Enforzamiento de Inmigración" Esta orden ejecutiva retrae la relación anterior entre los agentes locales de policía y de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE), obligando el gobierno federal control sobre las comunidades locales. La administración Trump pronto estará en contacto con el Sheriff Javier Salazar, del condado de Bexar, solicitando que firmar un “acuerdo de 287g” que forzara a la policía local para actue como agentes de ICE y cumplir con las leyes federales que ascienden a un ataque a nuestra comunidad. Como residentes del Condado de Bexar, somos más fuertes y más seguros juntos. No queremos acuerdos, no queremos prohibiciones, le pedimos al Sheriff Salazar que esté junto a nuestra comunidad y se niegue a participar en estos programas dañinos.

  • Tell Bedford County Board of Supervisors to Make Forest A Safe Welcoming County for Everyone
    The rhetoric used by this administration is making many in our community fearful. FEARFUL! They fear deportation, they fear violence against them, they fear rejection by the community they call home. We all benefit when everyone in our community feels valued. We are at greatest risk when people, or groups of people, feel persecuted, hated, alienated, disenfranchised, or powerless. Here's one immigrant story: My father was a bracero. He suffered a lot. He was far from his family in Mexico but convinced a good religious man to build a home for his family and brought his family home to the United States. Years later, my mother cleaned others people’s homes and ironed other people’s clothes: neighbors’ homes and clothes, in a middle class neighborhood in a home my father purchased. I stand proud every day because of them. I am proud to be an immigrant. Graciela Los Angeles Unless you are Native American, we are all immigrants. And we are all vulnerable. Let us follow the teachings of Christianity and extend a hand to those among us who need one. For "whatever you did not do for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did not do for me" (Matthew 25:31-46).

  • We want Duluth to be a sanctuary city!
    Donald Trump just announced executive action that threatens any city that seeks to protect immigrant residents from his deportation machine. What he’s trying to do is roll back the leaps forward we’ve made in recent years, but we won’t let him. In 2017, it’s the efforts to defend black lives, and protect migrant rights that make our cities safer, not Trump’s extra enforcement promises. To keep us safe, we need to evolve our local policies to make our cities real sanctuaries for all residents, not cancel them because of the illegitimate President's latest actions. That means a commitment to separating police from federal immigration enforcement, addressing policing that funnel black and indigenous people to jail, and places criminal charges on immigrant residents, making them a target for ICE agents. We want Mayor Larson and our city council to stand up to Trump and take action that doesn't just symbolically defend immigrants, but also transforms our city's policies to protect immigrants and refugees who live in Duluth. The President's threats should be cause to embolden our city leaders, not an excuse to abandon our potential progress. Update (01/31/2017 @ 3:10 PM): National groups like Color Of Change and Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) are advocating for real sanctuary cities, committed to: (1) working to end relationships between local law enforcement and ICE agencies, (2) eliminating cities’ investment with private prison companies and their investors, (3) ending the mass incarceration of Black and indigenous people within the entire prison industrial complex system, (4) continuing to fight back against police violence and hold police departments accountable, (5) ensuring families earn a fair livable wage, and sleep in the comfort of a safe, affordable home, and that black people feel safe and live with dignity. As a city, we believe that Duluth can and should affirm the safety and rights of all people by taking these steps.
