the Trump administration's bluster and threats, the federal government cannot coerce local police into becoming deportation agents, and should not try to scare local authorities into taking illegal actions that undermine public safety and subject them to liability. Police and municipal officials have been sticking by their decisions to do what's best for the safety of their communities, and we will continue to stand with them in court to defend those lawful choices."–ACLU lawyer Omar Jadwat.

The number of local law enforcement agencies that have contracts to act as ICE agents has plummeted over the years, and for good reason: it jeopardizes public safety to make people feels as though local officials are looking out for federal interests, not their city's residents.

Last week Fatima's dad was arrested driving her to school. The moment she came in the door, school administration sprang into action.

They started calling attorneys. They started calling the press. They organized a rally for her dad's release. They organized a fundraiser so Fatima's family could get by in the meantime.

Join us to hold vigil until Catalino Guerrero is safely returned to his family from an Immigration and Customs Enforcement check-in Newark, New Jersey. Catalino is a 25-year resident of the United States with four grandchildren and a member of Union City's St. Augustine Parish.

Mr. Guerrero was recently ordered to report for a check-in at the Newark Field Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement on March 10, at 10 am, to determine if he should be removed from the United States.

If Mr. Guerrero is deported it would be absurd and immoral as he is far from being a threat either to the community or to national security. Mr. Guerrero does not have a criminal record and was granted a stay of removal in 2013 and 2014 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

What: Join the vigil to stop the deportation of Catalino

When: March 10, at 9am

Who: Catalino's family, members of the community and faith leaders
