Immigrant Rights

Our immigrant brothers and sisters deserve the right to seek a better life in America, but policies that criminalize immigrants and tear families apart have tarnished that dream. ICE was formed during a time of heightened xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiment in the aftermath of 9/11 and is now the primary agency enforcing anti-immigrant deportation crackdowns. Between 2010 and 2016 alone, the Office of Inspector General received 33,000 reports of alleged abuse in ICE immigration detention centers. We need immigration policies rooted in our common humanity. We must abolish ICE and stop the mass deportations tearing families apart. We will protect DREAMers and create a fair pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented Americans.
