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:

Safety is something we all desire and it won’t come from the vitriol on display in Congress.” – Tania Unzueta, #Not1More Campaign Read more
