It’s time to break the shackles once and for all

HELP NEW YORK PASS THE STOP IMMIGRATION BOND ABUSE ACT (SIMBAA)

ASSEMBLY BILL #A7770 / SENATE  BILL #S7475

Right now, more than 2,700 people are languishing in immigration detention in the New York area. These include neighbors and coworkers, fellow New Yorkers, who committed no crimes.

Even more perversely, while enduring notoriously long detention proceedings, immigrants can be forced to choose between being separated from their families… or subjecting themselves to predatory and exploitative businesses whose practices take advantage of the shadowy immigration bond process.

Reasonable reform can stop companies from violating New Yorkers’ privacy, safety, and essential dignity. You can make it happen.

 

Help New York pass the STOP IMMIGRATION BOND ABUSE ACT (SIMBAA).

Whether you are a multi-generational New Yorker, recent arrival, or simply someone who cares about their neighbor and neighborhood, join this effort to end profiteering from immigrant families’ pain.
