Dramatic Increase of Mass Prosecutions Intensifies Family Separation and Criminalization Crisis
SEND AN E-MAIL AND MAKE A CALL TO ATTORNEY GENERAL BRAVEMAN, 619-557-5610 or 800-544-1106:
US Att. Braverman should immediately stop his plan to begin the mass prosecution of migrants in San Diego on July 2, 2018. This program is inhumane, unjust, and violates migrants fundamental rights and will lead to the separation of families. Given human rights violations that will occur, we urge him to not give in to the hateful rhetoric coming from Jeff Sessions and stop the move towards mass prosecutions.
Why is this important?
Today news broke that the Trump administration is significantly escalating its “zero tolerance” policy when it comes to immigrants seeking refuge in the U.S. and plan to introduce a “fast-track” mass prosecution program. Akin to the already existent Operation Streamline in southern Texas and Arizona, the program means that immigrants will be moved through the criminal system in mass hearings, from arraignment to sentencing - up to 150 migrants per day - in just a few hours.
From children being torn apart from their parents to chained groups of people being prosecuted en masse it is clear we have a human rights crisis. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is throwing the book at people without regard or discretion and this latest move will exponentially increase family separation and the prosecution and incarceration of migrants simply for the act of migration. This in addition to more money going to fund sentencing and private prisons.
