Say NO to 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. But, until the County Council passes (CB) 51, and County Executive Ball signs it, ICE will keep renting beds from the county detention center and separating families. But we are so close in the fight to end this contract once and for all.
We cannot continue to value profit over the well-being and safety of immigrants. And as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, there is a great need to reduce the number of people held in detention.
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 pass (CB) 51, and for County Executive Ball to sign it. Together, we will keep showing up until they do the right thing.
It’s long past time for Howard County to end the contract with ICE. Send a message to the Howard County Council Members to pass (CB) 51 and for County Executive Ball to sign it.
