End the IGSA contract with ICE in Howard County
TAKE ACTION NOW
Howard County residents have been showing up at town hall meetings, calling, emailing, and having meetings with County Council members for months urging them to end the contract between ICE and the Jessup detention center. Yet the contract is still in place, and ICE is still renting beds so they can keep separating Maryland families. But we are so close in the fight to end this contract once and for all.
Along with our partners CASA, Indivisible, Jews United for Justice, Our Revolution Howard, and other members of the Howard County Coalition for Immigrant Justice, we are calling on the County Council to support emergency legislation to end the IGSA contract. Howard County must follow public health experts’ guidance and responsibly decrease the detention center’s population.
Send a message to Council Members Jones and Rigby to urge them to support County legislation to end the contract with ICE now!
