Cambridge/Somerville Makes Calls for Immigrants' Rights!

SafeCommunities-EldridgeStateHouseSteps.jpg

Join us in making calls for the Safe Communities Act, which protects the civil rights, safety and well-being of all residents by drawing a clear line between immigration enforcement and public safety.

Governor Baker has recently introduced legislation that is as creative as it is unconstitutional. In the wake of the Lunn Decision in the Mass Supreme Court, a ruling that prohibits local court officers from following ICE detainer orders, Baker's new bill seeks to backdoor warrantless detention back into Mass law. Allegedly designed to facilitate "cooperation" with federal agents in the "transfer of convicted criminals," this is language so broad that instead of promoting "public safety" (its stated purpose) it allows local law enforcement to serve as adjunct deportation agents.

Baker's bad bill must be stopped before it can be voted into law. We're reaching out to progressive voters in key districts to urge their legislators to block Baker's legislation and support the Safe Communities Act instead!

BRING WITH YOU:
