AILA South Florida to Help Educate Community on ICE Policy Change

Posted by AILA South Florida, With 0 Comments, Category: Announcements, Blog Post, Tags: , , , ,

As AILA South Florida highlighted in a previous blog entry, Miami-Dade County recently implemented a new detainer policy that will no longer prolong county jail detention of certain individuals based on ICE hold requests.

Now the Miami-Dade County Community Relations Board is asking for AILA South Florida’s help in educating the community on the new policies and the importance of fair and humane immigration practices such as these.

For your reference, linked here is the formal letter received by AILA South Florida President Antonio Revilla from the board chair and the corresponding memorandum on Miami-Dade County’s ICE detainer requests policy.

Please join us in this effort to help inform the local community about these important changes to help ensure appropriate treatment of foreign nationals in Miami.
