Learn about the Safe Communities Act This action is finished

Created by presley

The Safe Communities Act is MA Senate bill S1305 and MA House bill H3269. The links have information on who cosponsored them and the full text. Here's a handout from Jamie Eldridge, who introduced the bill. 

The bill addresses the fact that state and local police are currently expected to assist the federal authorities in enforcing immigration law but not in enforcing other laws, like those against white collar crime. This discrepancy is motivated by xenophobia and makes our communities less safe, because it makes undocumented people afraid to report crimes to the state and local police. The bill also would ensure that Massachusetts doesn't help create a Muslim registry.

Help us collect information about the bill and immigrants' rights in general by adding to the comments.
