"We want to see the hardworking Latino members of our rural communities acknowledged and appreciated, not harassed, exploited and deported. Local law enforcement requires good relationships and trust in order to keep everyone safe – but ICE’s involvement in our local communities is jeopardizing that trust. What we need is a fundamental overhaul of our nation’s broken immigration system to prevent further erosion of our communities."
– Kathy Paterno, Rural Organizing Project Board President, Crook County, OR
Join ROP & our friends at CAUSA for a march and rally – June 15th in Portland!
ROP groups and activists from around the state are pushing back against ICE programs on the local level. One of the NW regional ICE facilities is located in Portland – which is why this action is urban-based. For more information about action ROPers are taking around the state to say NO to ICE collaboration with our local law enforcement agencies, see here or contact email@example.com.
