No one should be profiled for the way they look or the language they speak. Yet, local law enforcement collaboration with ICE’s deportation machine has encouraged racial profiling against immigrant communities and fostered distrust for local police. We cannot allow police to racially profile “immigrant looking” people.
Immigrants have constitutional rights in the United States and our legislators need to ensure that law enforcement will protect their right to due process, end racial profiling, and build community trust. We need to begin to repair the fractured relationship with the immigrant community and law enforcement. The community’s public safety depends on it.
Tell our legislators that they have a duty to defend the rights of all, that includes immigrants. Vote YES on the Trust Act (HB 304 / SB 88).
