CIPC is committed to working with immigrant communities across California to fight to keep families together, uphold civil rights protections, and rebuild confidence between local communities and local law enforcement. Through our work with various coalitions and community partners across the state, we seek to disentangle local law enforcement from a federal deportation system that is completely devoid of due process.
Too often, immigrants get “lost in detention” for long periods of time, without even the ability to see an immigration judge. Serious human rights violations occur with zero accountability and zero transparency and this must change. We support the growing calls to end failed policies of mass incarceration and mass deportation, we also call for policies that respect the humanity and the basic rights of every person.
