Families For Freedom was happy to be in the advisory committee of Human Impact Partners' new report – Family Unity, Family Health: How Family-Focused Immigration Reform Will Mean Better Health for Children and Families – that shines a light on the public health consequences of current immigration policy on children and families. Advised by a nationwide group of health and immigrant rights organizations and researchers, the report pulls together data from a wide range of sources on the impacts that the threat of deportation and detention has on the physical and mental health of children and families
Tens of thousands are detained and deported in the United States, the European Union and elsewhere but human migration will not stop. The number of migrants worldwide has increased from an estimated 36 million in 1991 to over 200 million today, including 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Migration is wired into the structures of capitalism and is transforming nation-state demographics and politics.
Join us this Wednesday, May 15, at 9am for a press conference on the steps of City Hall, calling for an end to discriminatory policing tactics like Stop-and-Frisk and the collaboration of police and ICE through Secure Communities. End S-Comm and Stop-and-Frisk!
We are migrants, undocumented, green card holders, workers, and students from diverse racial, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds who are directly affected by unjust and inhumane U.S. immigration policies that tear us apart from our families. With our allies we strongly believe in human rights for all, the right to mobility across continents, family unity, and an end to the current inhumane detention and deportation systems that has deported over 1.6 million people in the last 4 years and which incarcerates millions of people in the U.S. every year. Joins us for on May 1st to demand human rights for all!
The NYPD'S controversial racial profiling program Stop & Frisk combined with ICE's federal deportation program "Secure Communities" (S-Comm) puts our communities at increased risk of detention and deportation. Over 400,000 people, a record number, were exiled from the U.S. last year -- S-Comm played a key role. Join us at 9am at 500 Pearl street, Coutroom 15C and 1pm at 500 Pear Street, outside the courthouse.
