On July 23rd Families for Freedom, Immigrant Defense Project, and New York University School of Law Immigrant Rights Clinic released the report: Insecure Communities, Devastated Families: New Data on Immigrant Detention and Deportation Practices in New York City. In the wake of growing deportation programs such as the recently-activated “Secure Communities” initiative, this new report sheds light on the precise ways in which current detention and deportation practices are wreaking havoc on New York City immigrants and their communities. The deportation system is devastating families by not only threatening to exile their loved ones, but also often forcing immigrants to fight their cases for years while locked up in far-away immigration jails.
