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.2,419 of 3,000 SignaturesCreated by RAICES T.
This Two Year Old Has Been Held in Three Different Detention Centers, Sign to Free Her and Her MomSarai (name changed to protect her identity) fled to the United States with her 2 year old daughter after more than 13 years of severe domestic violence in Honduras. The family was initially detained in Dilley Family Detention Center and was then transferred to Berks Detention Center in Leesport, Pennsylvania where they have been detained for months. The family has a pending appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals and the daughter has a pending application for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. Despite DHS Secretary Johnson’s claim that they are not deporting families with pending relief, ICE attempted to deport Sarai and her daughter on Thursday evening. Sarai bravely resisted, fearing that her life would be at stake if returned. The following day, ICE tricked Sarai and told her that her attorneys had requested to see her, yet they took the family and flew them to San Antonio. Sarai and her daughter arrived at Karnes Family Detention Center at 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 15th. This is the third detention center for this mother and young child in the past 4 months. The family’s attorneys were not notified prior to the transfer and for hours were completely unaware of where this family had been taken. Since arriving in Karnes, Sarai’s daughter has not received any treatment for her anemia. This family could be deported at any moment! They have multiple forms of immigration relief pending, yet ICE seems to be doing everything in their power to remove this family against their will and hinder their ability to effectively communicate with their attorneys. We demand the deportation be stopped immediately and this family be released so they can pursue their immigration claims outside of detention.690 of 800 SignaturesCreated by RAICES T.
