Stop Unnecessary I.C.E. Raids Indefinitely:
While we can all agree that immigrants who commit violent crimes should face the full force of the law, most of the immigrants I.C.E. targets are low-level criminals or completely innocent of any crime. I.C.E. has overstepped their mission and is now more harmful than helpful. Families are being torn apart, and livelihoods destroyed.
Protect DACA and DAPA:
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents programs are promises that were made to immigrants and refugees who reside in the United States. We as a nation must keep our promises to individuals who seek refuge and peace in our nation.
No Private Detention Centers:
Private prisons are horrible enough, we should not allow private detention centers for immigrants and refugees.
Prison-Free Review Process:
Immigrants and refugees should be free for the duration of their civil administrative proceedings.
Path to Citizenship In-Place:
We are the United States, we must offer better opportunities for all. Immigrants and refugees who have lived here for decades and have paid taxes into our system must be allowed a path to citizenship in-place.
