To receive call- in details email:

With immigration checks set to be in all jails by 2013, local and national groups feel a sense of urgency to develop short-term and long-term strategies to slow down and turn back this alarming trend.

Please join us to discuss plans for a week of coordinated events, information gathering, and press work in opposition to local immigration enforcement policies, such as the 287(g) and Secure Communities programs.  This is an initial short-term effort that aims to create a space for a longer-term strategy before it’s too late.

Hear what local groups around the country are doing to gather information, educate communities, and bring this issue to the forefront. The kick-off date of these events will be in mid-March with the filing of a lawsuit for a Federal FOIA regarding Secure Communities.
