Tell Mass. legislators to protect immigrant families!

No one should ever have to fear that if they seek help in an emergency, their family will be torn apart. But with the Trump administration pushing hard to turn police and court officers into deportation agents, many immigrants don’t dare to report crimes or even go to the emergency room. It’s a public health and public safety crisis. We must put a stop to that.

The Safe Communities Act (S.1401 and H.3573), will be heard by the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security on Jan. 24. It has four key provisions, backed by a broad-based and diverse coalition:

  • Ensures police and court officials do not ask about immigration status;
  • Protects basic rights, just like a “Miranda” warning;
  • Creates standards for law enforcement interactions with ICE;
  • Ends 287(g) contracts that deputize officers as ICE agents.

Massachusetts urgently needs this bill. Will you join the fight to protect our communities?

Use our form to email legislators right away. If you have 3 more minutes, call them too (find their numbers here). They need to hear from us time and again, so let’s keep up the pressure!

Tell your legislators: I want you to lead on Safe Communities!
