Immigration

The US Program’s immigration work focuses on reforming harsh, outdated, and ineffective detention and deportation policies to ensure they take into account family unity, flight from persecution, and labor considerations that draw immigrants to the United States. We have exposed the crimes and unsafe working conditions that unauthorized immigrants are too afraid to report out of fear of being deported, the risks of violence back home for those denied due process to seek protection from US deportation, and the devastating impact on millions of people—citizens as well as non-citizens—whose families are torn apart due to inflexible and unfair immigration policies.

Stop Trump’s Immigration Agenda

Stop Trump’s Immigration Agenda

Trump is asking for billions to implement his anti-immigrant agenda. But we’ve got a chance in Congress to block Trump’s request for additional funds to: build more inhumane detention centers where immigrant lives are put in danger, and hire thousands more Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents ramping up the number of people torn from families through deportation. They would also be used to add more Customs and Border Protection agents, who have a track record of sending asylum seekers back to dangerous situations.
