Tell Bush & DHS: Stop the ICE Raids Now!

For the last several months, Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) has stepped up raids of workplaces and communities.  Yesterday, ICE agents carried out raids in two North Carlolina immigrant communities where Smithfield workers live, separating families and instilling fear in the community.  In June, Portland JwJ was on the scene as ICE carried out a massive worksite raid (read more here).Instead of doing the hard work of immigration reform, the Bush administration has bowed to pressure from anti-immigrant groups and has pushed to conduct middle-of-the-night-raids in immigrant communities and in workplaces. 

The consequences of these raids are cruel and mean-spirited.  The raids do nothing to further immigration reform; they only wreak havoc on workers lives, separate children from their parents, tear apart communities, and damage businesses.

Tell President Bush and Julie Myers, Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),  that we want REAL immigration reform with a path to citizenship and an IMMEDIATE END to the ICE raids.

Send a letter to the following decision maker(s):
Your Congressperson
Your Senators

Below is the sample letter:

Subject: Stop the ICE Raids Now

Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],

Instead of doing the hard work of immigration reform, your administration has bowed to pressure from anti-immigrant groups and has been conducting middle-of-the-night-raids in immigrant communities and in workplaces.

The consequences of these raids are cruel and mean-spirited. The raids do nothing to further immigration reform; they only wreak havoc on workers lives, separate children from their parents, tear apart communities, and damage businesses.

The country needs REAL immigration reform that provides a path to citizenship and an IMMEDIATE END to the ICE raids.

Sincerely,

your name here

  1. The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.
