Make your voices heard!
Last Friday, ICE/Deptartment of Homeland Security announced that they were rescinding all their agreements with the states regarding their implementation of the "S-COMM" Program, and that they would REQUIRE the states to implement it, even if they didn't want to! "S-COMM" is an ICE/DHS program which automatically sends fingerprints taken by local law enforcement to ICE. Thousands of people in California have been reported to ICE under "S-COMM," most of them charged with minor crimes and infractions or weren't charged with any crime at all!
ICE / DHS is upset that states like Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, and soon California when the TRUST Act (AB1081) passes our state legislature, have chosen not to implement "S-COMM" in our states. Now, ICE is trying to impose it on us, even though it is not federal law.
ICE / DHS, PRESIDENT OBAMA, AND CONGRESS NEED TO HEAR FROM US! NO MORE "S-COMM!" NO MORE DEPORTATIONS! KEEP OUR FAMILIES TOGETHER!
MARCH AND RALLY to END "S-COMM" NOW!
Friday, August 12, 11 am, Meet at Montgomery BART, on Market St., in San Francisco.
March to DHS Building, 630 Sansome St., San Francisco.
Organized by many different immigrant rights, faith-based, labor groups.
