Courthouses are places where people go to seek justice, pay fines, and participate in civil society. Yet over the past two years, there have been more than 200 documented civil arrests at courthouses in over 18 counties across the state. People are forced to risk arrest and deportation when coming to court, simply because of where they were born. Demand protection for our courthouses. Urge your legislator to support HB 2567. This bill builds community trust in our judicial system, prohibits civil arrests from disrupting local court functioning, and preserves access to our courts for everyone.
