#Not1More Deportation

All posts tagged statement

In response to the Congressional proposals using the death of Kate Steinle to promote increased incarceration and criminalization of immigrants,groups from the #Not1More campaign release the following statements:

“Democrats and Republicans are following Donald Trump’s example to criminalize immigrants in ways that poison the public debate and result inmore families separated.  Hearings like the one today do nothing to advance public safety and everything to stoke racist fears against all immigrants.  We will not be anyone’s scapegoat.  Opportunists may see this as a tragedy they can hijack but their short-sightedness will be turned back. Safety won’t be found in proposals that put more of us behind bars or drive up mass incarceration rates. Safety is something we all desire and it won’t come from the vitriol on display in Congress.” – Tania Unzueta, #Not1More Campaign Read more
