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The US Program’s immigration work focuses on reforming harsh, outdated, and ineffective detention and deportation policies to ensure they take into account family unity, flight from persecution, and labor considerations that draw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.

Take Action

Stop Trump’s Immigration Agenda

Stop Trump’s Immigration Agenda

Immigrant rights are under threat by the Trump administration. Trump’s campaign promises are becoming reality. While the administration bellows about building a wall, families are being torn apart, people who have lived almost their entire lives in the US are facing deportation, and tens of thousands are in detention conditions. Many of us are already fighting back against anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies. And on November 8th – the 1 year anniversary of President Trump’s election – it is time to raise the volume.
