Override Hogan's Veto - Maryland Immigrants Need "Dignity Not Detention"
Immigration detention centers are part of a system of oppression. Collaborations between ICE and local police have encouraged racial profiling and the unjust detention of too many Black, Indigenous, and Immigrants of Color. No one should be profiled for their race or detained for their immigration status.
Whether racists want to believe it or not, immigrants have constitutional rights in Maryland. Our legislators need to ensure those rights are protected. We can curb racial profiling and build community trust by ending immigration detention in Maryland, including prohibiting local jail contracts to detain immigrants for ICE. Maryland immigrants' dignity depends on this.
Tell your legislators to continue supporting immigrants in our community and vote to override the Governor’s veto on the Dignity Not Detention Act (HB 16).
Please take action now.
