Ask President Elect Obama to Suspend Immigration Raids Pending Review of DHS Policies

Currently, DHS' immigration enforcement policies use extreme measures to lock up undocumented workers, legal permanent residents and, at times, even U.S. citizens.  Raids of homes and businesses, often without a warrant, have not only steamrolled Constitutional protections, but also torn apart communities and families.

Conditions in immigration detention facilities are overcrowded and dangerous and have deteriorated to the point where people are dying in custody from treatable ailments, and people with chronic conditions are not getting the basic medical care they require.

Sign the Working Rights Group petition asking President Elect Obama to place a moratorium on current immigration enforcement practices in order to conduct a full review of DHS policies and programs to ensure that they are compliant with Constitutional protections and internationally recognized human rights standards.
