287(g) Action Page

In a 287(g) agreement, the Department of Homeland Security authorizes local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws. But policy flaws have enabled racial profiling and other abuses. In the wake of a grassroots campaign against Sheriff Arpaio and a highly critical Government Accountability Report, the federal government has announced a rewrite of the 287(g) program! In the meantime, communities are working to suspend current 287(g) agreements and block new ones until the program has been rewritten. See below for more information about 287(g) and related local campaigns.
