We sent a letter to congressman Salud Carbajal urging his office to seek the release of ALL immigrants in detention who are at high risk of a COVID-19 outbreak. The Department of Homeland Security has the power to parole an immigrant for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit, and the rapid global outbreak of COVID-19 is such a circumstance.

Representative Alan Lowenthal has sent a letter to ICE Deputy Director Matthew Albence urging the immediate release of at-risk individuals held at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention and family detention facilities. 35 members of Congress have co-signed this letter. Let's urge our congressman to join with them to protect public health by supporting the immediate release of those in immigrant detention facilities, stopping needless court appearances/filings and delaying required ICE check-ins until the COVID-19 public health crisis has passed. 

We’re asking you to join us by signing this petition. Send a message to Representative Salud Carbajal to bring ICE's discretionary power to the attention of the public and to fight to protect public health.

The immigrant community is at grave risk. Take action with us!
