Tell Bridgeport City Council: Pass the “Protection for Bridgeport Families and Immigrants” Ordinance!

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

For years, Make The Road has been fighting to ensure that our immigrant community in Bridgeport can live in safety and dignity. After years of fighting, we are so close to achieving victory!

Fight Back Committee members have worked with Bridgeport Council Member Marcus Brown to introduce a City Ordinance called “Protection for Bridgeport Families and Immigrants” in the Bridgeport City Council. It must now first be passed by the Ordinance Committee and then by the full Bridgeport City Council. 

Passing this ordinance will mean that: Bridgeport Police Dept must comply with the TRUST Act, must train its members on the TRUST Act, and must be committed to helping victims of crime seek help regardless of immigration status. In addition, it will also prohibit Bridgeport Police and City Employees from asking or requiring immigration status unless required by federal law, and it will require the City to take steps to ensure language accessibility for all Bridgeport residents. 

With this ordinance, the City of Bridgeport and its leadership has finally moved from empty words and promises to true action. Now we must hold them accountable.

SIGN BELOW AND TELL OUR CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS - VOTE YES ON THE  “PROTECTION FOR BRIDGEPORT FAMILIES AND IMMIGRANTS” ORDINANCE

____

Nuestra ciudad tiene una gran comunidad de inmigrantes que vive con miedo de lo que la presidencia de Trump está haciendo con ellos y sus familia.

Durante años, Make The Road ha luchado para para garantizar que nuestra comunidad de inmigrantes en Bridgeport pueda vivir con seguridad y dignidad.. ¡Después de años de lucha, estamos tan cerca de la victoria!

Los miembros del Comité de lucha han trabajado con el miembro del Consejo de Bridgeport, Marcus Brown, para presentar una ordenanza de la ciudad llamada "Protección para las familias e inmigrantes de Bridgeport". Primero debe ser aprobado por el Comité de Ordenanzas y luego aprobado por el Ayuntamiento de Bridgeport.

La aprobación de esta ordenanza significa que: El Departamento de Policía de Bridgeport debe cumplir con la Ley TRUST, debe capacitar a sus miembros en la Ley TRUST, y debe comprometerse a ayudar a las víctimas de delitos a buscar ayuda, independientemente de su estado migratorio. Además, también prohibirá que la Policía de Bridgeport y los Empleados de la Ciudad soliciten o requieran el estado de inmigración a menos que lo exija la ley federal, y requerirá que la Ciudad tome medidas para garantizar la accesibilidad del idioma para todos los residentes de Bridgeport.

Con esta ordenanza, la ciudad de Bridgeport y su liderazgo han pasado de palabras vacías y promesas a realmente tomar acción. Ahora debemos hacerlos responsables.

FIRME NUESTRA PETICIÓN AQUÍ Y DIGA A NUESTROS MIEMBROS DEL CONSEJO DE LA CIUDAD - VOTE SÍ A LA ORDENANZA DE “PROTECCIÓN PARA LAS FAMILIAS Y LOS INMIGRANTES DE BRIDGEPORT”

    I am concerned about terrorist attacks, and I am hesitant to sign this, I admit. But I also know that we must help others in the world through kindness and generosity; God willing by offering people in need a safe haven we will earn the trust of the immigrant community and gain more than we lose.
