(NEW YORK, NY) February 10, 2021: ICE continues to harass and target immigrants in our communities–our neighbors, parents, workers that keep the economy going. It is critical that President Biden rolled back Trump Administration policies targeting all immigrants and set very limited priorities for the harsh enforcement tactics such as arrest, detention, and deportation.

The Rapid Response Legal Collaborative, made up of Make the Road New York, UnLocal, and the New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG), authored a letter urging ICE to enforce the “Pekoske Memo” and refrain from reinstating removal orders where the individual is not considered a priority, among other issues. ICE must respect those priorities and release members of our communities from the horrible detention conditions in NY and NJ area jails, to return them to their families.
