#Not1More Deportation

Organizational Sign-On Letter to Request Stop to Deportation of New Orleans Workers and Parents Detained During ICE Raids

In 2013 New Orleans has seen an increase of families being torn apart by immigration raids and deportation, especially affecting a large number of parents and day laborers.

These immigration raids have taken place in small stores, parking lots, apartment buildings, day laborer corners and people’s homes. The New Orleans Congress of Day Laborers and the families facing separation are organizing a campaign to stop these raids, and stop the deportations of their loved ones.

Please sign on to these two letters to Immigration and Customs Enforcement if you represent a community organization or institution that supports these parents and workers fighting against deportation.

Letter to New Orleans Field Office Director Trey Lund, asking for prosecutorial discretion for a list of parents who were detained during ICE raids.  Read full letter here.

Letter to Glenda Raborn, Immigration and Customs Enforcement New Orleans Office of Chief Counsel, requesting prosecutorial discretion in the case of reconstruction workers arrested during an immigration raid on Louisiana Home Elevations. Read full letter here.
