Why is Multnomah County's Sheriff voluntarily participating in the ICE Hold program?
This is an important day to put pressure on those elected to serve our communities to make sure they are actually doing that!
Ani and Lyn will talk with Marco Mejia, of Jobs with Justice, and Jaime Limon Guzman-- two activists from the ACT Network about Multnomah County's Sheriff Staton's participation in ICE holds.
Over thelast three years, community leaders have met multiple times with Sheriff Staton and officials from his department to discuss policy recommendations to limit unfair, costly detentions of immigrants in local jails for deportation purposes.
After an action last Monday, December 10th, Sheriff Staton has told activists that he will meet with them on Monday the 17th, to let him know what decision he's made.
