Protect the Constitutional Rights of Immigrants 

Created by Anonymous

On average, every $100 raised results in an hour of lobbying from our lobbyists

My story

I have been harassed by federal officers and it prevents me from working, living, and socializing. I feel like I have been persistently humiliated and abused for over six years. I have had no political intervention from the district attorney, mayor, and governor. The laws around immigrant rights need to change.

About immigrants' rights

The constitutional protections of due process and equal protection embodied in our Constitution apply to every person, regardless of immigration status. The current treatment of people in our country is simply un-American. 
 

  • 83 percent of people deported from the United States were not given a hearing before a judge.
     

  • Our government locks up hundreds of thousands of immigrants every year, exposing detainees to brutal and inhumane conditions of confinement.
     

  • The immigration system contains an unconstitutional lack of rights. No one should be in immigration detention without a constitutionally adequate bond hearing in which the government bears the burden of showing that detention is necessary to protect against danger to the community.
     

  • More than half of individuals in immigration court proceedings are unrepresented by an attorney.

Most nonprofit organizations that work on immigrants' rights issues focus on the court system to advocate for the rights of individual people and families. But the laws that govern the immigration system need an overhaul to ensure the rights of all people are protected.

 

Regardless of personal belief on US immigration policy, all Americans should be concerned that the government is violating the constitutional rights of people in our country.

 

Because, if the "government has the power to deny the rights and due process to one vulnerable group, everyone’s rights are at risk."
