Join the fight in New York State against the unjust deportation system, and demand that Governor Cuomo end the S-Comm program immediately.
Last year, New York State gave Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) the green light to partner with police through a federal fingerprinting program called “Secure Communities," or S-Comm, a program plagued with controversy. S-Comm encourages racial profiling, undermines community trust in the police, and puts tens of thousands of people into an unjust deportation system each year. Even victims of domestic violence!
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn just announced that his state would quit the S-Comm program after a months-long investigation, which revealed deep concerns over the way that immigrants were being targeted and families split apart. Now, New York state legislators and advocates are pressuring Gov. Cuomo to immediately do the same.
The good news is that we can still stop S-Comm in New York State before it gets implemented statewide!
Don't let New York tear our families and communities apart. Sign your name to tell Governor Cuomo to end New York's "Secure Communities" agreement immediately!
