Defend DC Families Against Federal Immigration Enforcement Actions

Dear Mayor,

Thanks for opposing Immigration and Customs Enforcement's "in-Secure Communities" deportation program (S-Comm) last year. Because of you and the Council's leadership, DC was the first city in the nation to reject S-Comm. We set off a national movement by denouncing a program that would destroy families, increase racial profiling, and damage community policing by deterring residents to report crime for fear of police and deportation.

Now that the federal government wants to impose the program on DC unilaterally, we need your leadership again. We urge you to issue a new Executive Order to modernize existing policies that protect DC residents against harmful federal immigration enforcement actions.

Please defend our diverse communities and our shared belief that we are truly One City by taking immediate action on this issue.
