Immigrant Rights Project
The Constitution protects the due process and equal protection rights of every person in the US, regardless of immigration status. However, the Trump Administration's executive orders, raids, the pardon of former-Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and a bruising rhetoric that demonizes immigrants have emboldened government enforcement agents. When the government has the power to deny legal rights and due process to one vulnerable group, everyone’s rights are at risk. The ACLU of Washington’s Immigration Project seeks to expand and enforce the civil rights of immigrants, to disrupt Washington State’s participation in federal immigration enforcement and deportation, and limit ICE/CBP’s footprint in Washington.
