Tell the Multnomah County Commissioners: Thank You For Addressing Unjust ICE Deportations!

    1. Petition by

      NATIONAL DAY LABORER ORGANIZING NETWORK

On March 1, the Multnomah Board of County Commissioners passed a resolution calling for an end to the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) unjust deportations in Multnomah County.

This resolution brings us a step closer to ending ICE’s deportation dragnet in our County. It's important to affirm government leaders when they show leadership in the struggle for immigrants’ rights -- won't you join us in thanking the Commissioners for their stance against injustice?

By asking our local officials to detain individuals under suspicion of being undocumented, ICE has forced the costs of federal immigration enforcement onto our local governments, and needlessly torn apart thousands of Oregon families.

With this resolution, Chair Cogen and the County Board of Commissioners have taken an important first step in addressing the devastating impacts of ICE detainer requests and Secure Communities. Learn more and add your voice now by emailing the commissioners.
