Say NO to ICE’s unjust deportations; March 1, 2012 action in Portland, OR

Help End Unjust ICE Deportations in Multnomah County

Join immigrant, faith, labor, and civil liberties advocates to stand up for our communities and say NO to ICE’s unjust deportations in Multnomah County!

Thursday, March 1st, 10am-12pm
Commissioners Board Room, Multnomah Building
501 SE Hawthorne St, Portland, Oregon

Hearing before Multnomah County Commission to pass a resolution supporting our communities’ and ICE Director John Morton’s demand for prosecutorial discretion on all deportation cases in our region.

Supported by the ACT for Justice and Dignity Network

The hearing will address issues critical to public safety and immigrant rights in Multnomah County. By making it mandatory for our local law enforcement agencies to do their dirty work, ICE has forced the costs of federal immigration enforcement onto our local governments and their residents, diminished our public safety, and needlessly torn apart thousands of Oregon families. Help us make our voices heard as we support Chair Cogen and the County Board of Commissioners in protecting our communities and seeking accountability from ICE.

Can you show your support by attending the hearing?

For more information, please visit www.actforjusticeanddignity.org or contact Aeryca Steinbauer at aeryca@causaoregon.org.

Encourage your faith leader to sign on to our ONSM Faith Leader Letter of Support.  Read the letter. 

It is important for us to show strong support for this resolution, which paves the way for continued work to support immigrants in our community.
