Pass the Safe Communities Act in Massachusetts

As the Trump Administration continues to execute its extremist anti-immigrant agenda... rescinding DACA, separating families at the border, breaking records for number of deaths in ICE detention, and dismantling asylum... Massachusetts has an opportunity to take a stand and not become complicit in this inhumane oppression of immigrants: The Safe Communities Act

After receiving a favorable report from the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security on July 15th, this bill is poised to advance on Beacon Hill.  The Safe Communities Act would restore community trust in law enforcement and guarantee equal justice regardless of citizenship status.  It would help neutralize the campaign of terror being waged against members of our own communities, keep a clear line between the police and ICE, and prevent immigrants from being stripped of their rights.

Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are the lifeblood of our Commonwealth. They are our friends, our neighbors, our classmates, our colleagues. They deserve to know that they will not be removed from their homes, separated from their loved ones, or detained indefinitely with no recourse. They deserve to know that we, the residents of Massachusetts, will not tolerate their persecution.
