ICE Shouldn’t Arrest Undocumented Immigrants Victims of Crimes

The following statement can be attributed to Hector Figueroa President of 32BJ SEIU:

“Arresting undocumented immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other crimes not only undermines much needed trust between immigrant communities and the police, but will also potentially end a practice that has been proven to help make our country safer for all. Once again, the Trump administration is creating a dangerous environment where people are not going to feel safe, no matter their status.”

“El arresto de inmigrantes indocumentados víctimas de violencia doméstica, agresión sexual y otros crímenes no sólo socava la confianza necesaria entre las comunidades de inmigrantes y la policía, sino que también podría poner fin a una práctica que ha demostrado ser efectiva en ayudar a nuestro país a ser más seguro para todos. La administración Trump está creando un ambiente peligroso donde la gente no se va a sentir segura, no importa su estatus.”

With more than 163,000 members, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country.
