Press Conference: Dignity Not Detention Act


Add to My Calendar Tuesday, May 18, 2021 10:00am


On Tuesday, May 18th, at 10:00 a.m. EST, join the Center for Constitutional Rights, Families for Freedom, the Abolish ICE NY-NJ Coalition, State Senator Julia Salazar (D18), and Assemblymember Karines Reyes (D87) for a press conference on the Dignity Not Detention Act.

The New York State Senate and Assembly have introduced the Dignity Not Detention Act, a bill that would end existing and future contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in New York State. This would impact jails in Orange, Rensselaer, Chautauqua, and Clinton Counties, which currently contract with ICE to detain immigrants. This bill was introduced by State Senator Julia Salazar and Assemblymember Karines Reyes.
