Pass the Montgomery County Trust Act.
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
Right now, immigrant families right here in Montgomery County are at risk of deportation by ICE after interacting with Montgomery County Police over minor incidents.
When a simple conversation with the police can mean deportation, it breaks down the trust between the community and the police. And when trust between the police and the community break down, we are all less safe.
That’s why we need the Trust Act - a county ordinance to stop the police from holding on to undocumented immigrants to be picked up by ICE. Will you sign the petition for Montgomery County Council to pass the Trust Act?
Policing in Montgomery County should reflect our inclusive, community-focused values. But for many members of our community, it doesn’t. Many undocumented immigrants have been handed over to ICE for deportation proceedings despite the county’s internal policy.
That breaks down trust between the community and the police. And when trust between the police and the community break down, we are all less safe.
That’s why I’m asking you to support our petition to county council members. Add your voice to strengthen our community together.
