ICE Should Stop Deportations of Haitians
The National Lawyers’ Guild has answered ICE’s request for feedback on it’s policy to resume deporations of Haitian nationals:
On Monday, March 7, 2011 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requested feedback on its policy to resume deportations/removals to Haiti. The deadline for comments is March 11 to email your comments to ICE.
The National Immigration Project/NLG objects to this decision to deport Haitians, to ICE’s focus on so-called “criminal aliens,” and to ICE’s seeking comments after it has already begun to send people back. ICE’s policy has already led to one death and the deportation of 27 Haitians into a humanitarian crisis. We also object to the short and non-transparent comment process that is occurring after ICE has already implemented a policy.
Please take the following steps by this Friday:
1) Review the policy here http://www.ice.gov/news/library/policies/
2) Email ICE your personal or organizational comments to vog.shdnull@stnemmocycilopitiah
