ICE out of all schools, colleges, universities, and technical institutes!!
The last ten years have seen an unprecedented expansion of immigration enforcement programs seeking to entangle themselves with local and state institutions to advance unjust deportations. School officials and campus police departments have also been targeted and most are already sending information to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). If ICE has already acted like a rogue agency in the past, the election of Donald Trump makes it urgent to enact and defend strong campus sanctuary policies.
The tools below can provide some guidance, including ICE's own policy, background info, and model language. For over a decade, NDLON has worked with immigrant communities across the country in advancing local policies to reject ICE collusion with local law enforcement.

ICE POLICY ON "SENSITIVE LOCATIONS"
ICE detention requests have (repeatedly) been found unconstitutional.
Federal courts have ruled various times about the unconstitutionality of ICE's warrantless detainer requests ("ICE holds"). This is a recent court ruling, by a federal court based in IL.
CAL STATE UNIVERSITY & the #BringJoseBack CAMPAIGN
In early 2016, a father of six US citizen children, including a US Marines Veteran, was stopped by Cal State Long Beach campus police for a broken headlight. Jose Alvarez was transferred to ICE because of a 21-year old conviction (for which he served time), and deported within 7 hours. Jose's family has launched a campaign to bring back their father and make this doesn't happen again. And the CSU community continues to demand more from its administration to ensure this cannot happen again.
