WE DEMAND A SANCTUARY CITY FOR BRIDGEPORT!

WE DEMAND A SANCTUARY CITY FOR BRIDGEPORT!

Our city has a large immigrant community that lives in fear of what a Trump presidency will mean for them and their families.

All over the US, hundreds of localities, including East Haven, Hartford and New Haven, have adopted policies to improve public safety and prevent federal overreach by separating their local police from immigration enforcement, which is a strictly federal function. When victims and witnesses are afraid of talking to the police, this makes everyone less safe.

In a sanctuary city, officials implement policies to restrict local police from turning immigrants over to federal immigration agents and declare in no uncertain terms that immigrants are welcome. Without these measures, undocumented immigrants are left vulnerable to racial profiling, detention, and deportation. For this reason, we urge you to join us to declare publicly that Bridgeport is a welcoming city and our schools are welcoming schools where immigrants have human rights.

EXIGIMOS UNA CIUDAD SANTUARIO EN BRIDGEPORT!

Nuestra ciudad tiene una gran comunidad de inmigrantes que vive con miedo de lo que significará para ellos una presidencia de Trump.

En todo Estados Unidos, cientos de localidades, incluyendo East Haven, Hartford y New Haven, han adoptado políticas para mejorar la seguridad pública y prevenir los excesos federales al separar a la policía local de la implementación de politicas de inmigración, lo que es una función estrictamente federal. Cuando las víctimas y los testigos tienen miedo de hablar con la policía, esto hace que todos estén menos seguros.

En una ciudad santuario, los funcionarios implementan políticas para restringir la policía local de reportar a los inmigrantes a agentes federales de inmigración y declarar en términos inequívocos que los inmigrantes son bienvenidos. Sin estas medidas, los inmigrantes indocumentados son vulnerables al perfil racial, la detención y la deportación.

Por esta razón, le urgimos a que se una a nosotros para declarar públicamente que Bridgeport es una ciudad que le da la bienvenida a los inmigrantes y que nuestras escuelas  y lugrares públicos  son espacios donde los inmigrantes tienen derechos humanos.

    I am a retired Bridgeport high school teacher. It has been my experience that my “immigrant” students have been my best students. I am very sympathetic to their cause.
