We are expressing our support for Immigrants and the Safe Communities Amendment to the FY 2019 Mass. Budget!
Step one is to call and email here: https://actnow.io/JNdtN99 for Gov. Baker and your local Rep as well as calling Rep. Ronald Mariano, the majority leader of the Massachusetts House of Representatives (617-722-2300 Ronald.Mariano@mahouse.gov) to demand their support.
This amendment will prevent local police from inquiring about immigration status, stop 287(g) collaboration agreements with ICE, ensure due process protections for immigrants, and prohibit any discriminatory registries. It supports our constitutional rights and does NOT prevent law enforcement agencies from sharing information. This amendment has passed the senate and now needs to pass the house. Rep. Mariano and all need to support this amendment to protect hard working, law abiding immigrants and all people in the commonwealth.
