SaveTPS Phone Bank

November 20, 2017, 1:30pm - November 20, 2017, 3:00pm

Join Brown Immigrant Rights Coalition, Central American United Student Association, and their allies on Monday, Nov 20 at 1:30pm-4pm at Faunce Memorial Room to fight to extend TPS for Haitians and to have them co-sponsor H.R. 4253, the American Promise Act which would allow TPS holders to become permanent residents. We will have food + scripts provided as well as a check-in place where you can get your Congress reps' number and a chance to sign up to receive updates on TPS and the bill as well as a chance for you to be a part of any future action. Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is a humanitarian designation made by the President of the United States for the benefit of people who could not safely return to their countries due to armed conflict, a natural disaster, an epidemic, or other extraordinary conditions. The Trump administration can choose to extend TPS for all countries. Hoewever, the administration's actions over the last 6 months suggest they are looking to end the program. This will affect thousands of families in the Boston area, many of whom are on our own campus. Join us in calling our representatives to #SaveTPS by co-sponsoring the H.R. 4253 American Promise Act of 2017. Also call your senators to have them support the SECURE Act. More details are available here from the MIRA Coalition website: www.miracoalition.org/images/Documents/TPS-factsheet-Nov92017.pdf More details are available here for the House Bill: www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/4253/text More details are available here for the Senate Bill: www.cardin.senate.gov/newsroom/press/release/cardin-van-hollen-feinstein-introduce-legislation-to...

On Wednesday, March 22nd, we invite you to stand up to protect our immigrant neighbors in Rhode Island.

The House Judiciary Committee will face a choice in either protecting our immigrant neighbors from Trump's deportation force, or collaborating with federal immigration officials in the splitting apart of families and our community.

The Comittee will hear H5515 ( webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText17/HouseText17/H5515.pdf ), a bill we support, as it would:

Prevent ICE from enlisting the help of local law enforcement officials in deporting families.

Protect cities and towns from the threat of litigation as a result of cooperating with ICE, as it prevents said cooperation

We encourage community members to testify AGAINST H5093 ( webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText17/HouseText17/H5093.pdf ), a bill that would:

It will not make our communities safer. This bill mandates widely discredited policing practices, eroding public trust and making local policing more difficult. And has been publically opposed by Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare, and also nationally criticized by mayors and police chiefs.

It will drive our immigrant communities further underground, making people less likely to report crimes for fear of being targeted by the police.

ICE's Secure Communities Program has deported several undocumented immigrants as a result of "collateral" arrests, leading to the deportation of those who have not committed nor been convicted of any crime in the United States. …

Help fellow Syrian student Khaled Almijali return to Brown. He is a member of our community who was affected by Trump's travel ban. In January 2017, after a successful first semester at Brown School of Public health, Khaled traveled to Turkey to assist his team in coordinating humanitarian assistance for Syria. When he tried to board his plane back to the U.S., he was notified that the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul had revoked his student visa. He is still stranded in Turkey, awaiting a decision on a new visa, while his pregnant wife is waiting for him in the U.S.

On February 28, we will deliver a petition to the offices of Democratic Representatives Corvese, O'Brien, Phillips, Ucci, and Edwards to express our opposition to the so-called SAFETY AND PROTECTION ACT" (Bill H 5093). This bill would make it a crime for local public officials not to aggressively target immigrants in our community and allow any citizen to sue them if they didn't. This measure forces every local official to be a tool of Trump's racist immigration policy — and it goes against Rhode Island values & and what Democrats purport to stand for. Representatives, take your names off it!

Sign the petition here:

petitions.moveon.org/workingfamilies/sign/dont-write-trumps-anti?source=c.em&r_by=4643457

More information on why we oppose Bill H 5093:

will not make our communities safer. This bill mandates widely discredited policing practices, eroding public trust and making local policing more difficult. And has been publically opposed by Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare, and also nationally criticized by mayors and police chiefs.

will drive our immigrant communities further underground, making people less likely to report crimes for fear of being targeted by the police.

a state whose hallmark is The Independent Man, H 5093 would require your state and local governments to do what they are told by the Trump administration, whether it is good for Rhode Islanders or not, including reporting the citizenship status of any Rhode Islander to the Federal Government.

** This event is being organized by a new coalition to protect immigrant rights **

Esta propuesta de ley definiría como acto criminal que los funcionarios p√∫blicos no persiguieran y acosaran a los inmigrantes de nuestra comunidad, y permitiría que cualquier ciudadano demandara al oficial que se negara a hacerlo. Esta medida obliga a todo funcionario p√∫blico a ser una herramienta de las políticas de inmigración racistas de Trump y adem√°s va en contra de los valores del estado de Rhode Island y todo lo que los Demócratas pretenden defender. ¬°Pedimos a los Representantes que quiten sus firmas de esta propuesta!

Se puede firmar la petición aquí:

petitions.moveon.org/workingfamilies/sign/dont-write-trumps-anti?source=c.em&r_by=4643457

No har√° que nuestras comunidades sean m√°s seguras. La propuesta ordena unas pr√°cticas policiales que han sido rotundamente desacreditadas, que dañarían la confianza p√∫blica y harían m√°s difícil el trabajo policial local. Adem√°s, Steven Pare, el Comisionado de la Seguridad P√∫blica de Providence, se ha declarado p√∫blicamente en contra de la propuesta, que ha sido criticada a nivel nacional por alcaldes y jefes de policía.

La propuesta llevaría a que nuestras comunidades de inmigrantes se escondieran, haciendo que la gente estuviese menos dispuesta a reportar crímenes por el miedo de ponerse en la mira de la policía.

En un estado cuyo sello distintivo es el Independiente," H 5093 requeriría que su gobierno tanto estatal como local hiciera lo que diga la administración de Trump, sea bueno o malo para los ciudadanos de Rhode Island; esto incluye reportar el estatus de ciudadanía de cualquier residente de Rhode Island al Gobierno Federal.

We, members of the Brown Immigrant Rights Coalition (BIRC), are empowered by the collective efforts that resulted in recent policy changes in regards to undocumented students at Brown University. These changes will enable undocumented and DACA-mented students to apply as domestic applicants beginning this admissions cycle. Undocumented and DACA-mented applicants will now benefit from the university's need-blind admissions policy, and upon matriculation, Brown University will meet 100 percent of each students' demonstrated financial need.

This work would have been impossible without the tireless labor of students, faculty, and alumni, especially women of color and undocumented students who are too often the subject of institutional erasure. We recognize that there is much work left to be done, and BIRC is determined to remain active in the implementation of these policies at Brown. We are also committed to continue the fight within the global immigrant rights struggle in order to uphold our values and create a world where all forms of oppression are abolished. …

"Data released by the Department of Homeland Security shows that black immigrants are detained and deported at higher rates than their counterparts of other backgrounds. Over the past 20 years, since the 1996 laws have been in effect, statistics have shown a dramatic, alarming increase in the number of undocumented immigrants of African descent who have been racially profiled by local police and turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation. Estimates show that the deportation rate of undocumented black immigrants is five times their numbers in the undocumented population, which is similar to the overrepresentation of African Americans in the criminal justice system. Furthermore, black immigrants are twice as likely to be detained due to a criminal conviction. Even though black immigrants make up only 7% of the total immigrant population, 20% of all immigrants in deportation proceedings due to criminal convictions are black." …
