Protect Immigrant Communities Across New York

The Trump administration is determined to cruelly separate immigrant families and increase deportations across the county. Even in New York, the administration and ICE are pressuring law enforcement agencies across the state to set aside their local duties and instead help locate and arrest people for federal immigration purposes.

Tell lawmakers – Keep New York’s state and local resources out of ICE’s cruelty.

The Trump administration is determined to cruelly separate immigrant families and increase deportations across the county. Even in New York, the administration and ICE are pressuring law enforcement agencies across our state to set aside local duties to help locate and arrest people for federal immigration purposes.

Doing so opens the door to unconstitutional racial profiling and diverts our local resources to enable ICE’s agenda.

Because of ICE’s pressure on local law enforcement, many immigrant New Yorkers live with the fear that a minor brush with police, like a simple traffic stop, could lead to being torn away from their families. It makes people less likely interact with government or seek help from or offer information to authorities – because they fear doing so could put them at risk. This lack of trust erodes local community safety.

I urge you to pass the New York for All Act (S.7562/A.9586). The bill preserves state and local resources for community safety, ensures that local resources cannot be diverted to carry out ICE’s cruelty, and protects immigrant families.

Targeting immigrant communities for deportation is Trump’s priority, not New York’s.
