Join the Effort to End the 287(g) Program

This week, 521 organizations from around the country -- civil rights, criminal justice, community and immigrant rights organizations – joined together to send a letter to President Obama urging him to terminate the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) widely criticized 287(g) program, which relinquishes the authority to enforce civil federal immigration law to local enforcement and corrections officials.

Please add your voice to this demand by sending President Obama an e-mail in support of the demand to terminate the 287(g) program and to restore fundamental fairness for all in our immigration enforcement policy. Your e-mail also will be sent to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and your US Senator and Congressperson.
