The Immigrant Justice Network, along with a coalition of grassroots and national organizations, demands that Congress take legislative action to disentangle the criminal legal and immigration systems that propagate mass incarceration and mass deportation, paving a New Way Forward for immigrant justice.
Here is a 4-part video series about New Way Forward. This video features Representative Ayanna Pressley, original co-sponsor of the New Way Forward Act, speaking about the importance of this visionary legislation.
Our immigration system and mass incarceration are inextricably linked, ignoring the humanity of individuals and decimating community. No human is illegal. Proud to sponsor the #NewWayForward Act because it's time our immigration laws put compassion before cruelty. pic.twitter.com/0l1OQ3oPi7
