Please join the Interfaith Immigration Coalition Webinar on Prosecutorial Discretion and ICE Accountability, Monday, March 30th, 2015 at 4 PM ET.
Is Immigration Customs Enforcement executing the new Prosecutorial Discretion guidelines appropriately?
There are indicators that show ICE is not following these new Department of Homeland Security guidelines, such as the recent deportation of Pastor Max in Iowa, the lack of granting discretion to certain cases of individuals living in Sanctuary, and ICE Director Saldana's recent comments in a congressional hearing in support of forcing local police to comply with ICE detainers to hold immigrants.
As we continue to wait for the appeals process of the Texas court ruling that delayed the implementation of DAPA / expanded DACA, and as ICE has been targeting any immigrant with a criminal conviction through "Operation Crosscheck," the faith community must hold ICE accountable to implementing Prosecutorial Discretion appropriately.
Join this Webinar to discuss what we can do to hold ICE accountable.
