#Not1More Deportation

Organizations Call for a Pause to Deportations

In the wake of the Supreme Court decision leaving in tact an injunction on the expansion of deferred action programs that would’ve provided relief to approximately five million people, there is an urgent need for the current administration to take further action to improve immigration policy.

Stopping raids and other deportations is both sensible and humane. The President has unused authority to make immigration more humane during his remaining months in office.

The #Not1More Campaign, ILRC, BAJI, United We Dream, We Belong Together, the UndocuBlack Network, National Immigration Project of the National Lawyer’s Guild, National Day Laborer Organizing Network, MoveOn Civic Action, and MPower Ask that Your Organization Signs On to this Letter to the President Calling for a Moratorium on Deportations.

Dear President Obama,

The current administration has the legal authority and moral responsibility to take further action to make a more just immigration system. We, the undersigned write in support of the continued call to issue a temporary moratorium on deportations for your remaining time in office.

The Supreme Court decision in United States vs Texas left in place the injunction on the expansion of deferred action. It did not, however, impact the Administration’s jurisdiction or its executive power to implement, expand, reduce, or shutter the immigration enforcement programs it has invested in.

While that court case proceeds, so does a deportation and enforcement crisis that requires your further action. Before the next president of the United States takes office it is imperative that you take definitive steps to put an end to inhumane practices and ensure the belonging of undocumented community members.

Your Administration, particularly through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its various subcomponents, still has unused executive authority to stop the raids, provide relief from unjust removals, and uphold the civil, human, and labor rights of the undocumented population in the US. .

In the last eight years, executive authority has dramatically expanded our nation’s deportation apparatus. We ask you to use that same authority to now make it more humane.
