Protect Immigrants Rights’ in Miami-Dade County
TAKE ACTION NOW
Immigrants have played a vital role in building Miami-Dade County. From opening small businesses, bakeries, and restaurants to serving as public officials or being essential workers, immigrants have helped our community prosper for years and contribute millions of dollars to our local economy.
Miami-Dade County wouldn’t be what it is today without the ongoing contributions made by immigrants from across the globe. And yet, many immigrants live in fear that they will be subjected to immigrant detention and be put into the inhumane deportation pipeline.
Right now, local officials are forced to follow one-size-fits-all policies that burden local police and take their focus away from community needs in order to support the federal government’s deportation agenda.
Miami-Dade County needs to make local decisions that will keep our loved ones, friends and families safe from overzealous ICE agents. Every person in our county, regardless of their status, should be able to live, work, raise their family, and travel without fear of violence, harrassment and discrimination. We cannot let the federal government’s failure to create a realistic path to citizenship for hard-working immigrant families result in their forced deportation.
