The Immigration Committee supports the rights of immigrants throughout the Bay Area. We oppose efforts to detain and deport people based on their immigration status. These efforts increasingly mimic criminal enforcement and punishment, yet individuals in immigration proceedings are not afforded all the rights of criminal defendants. We work to improve the laws affecting immigrants and to inform the public about the rights all of us, including immigrants, retain. The Committee has also initiated a Court Watch Project for law students. For more information about the committee's work contact Liz Pellegrin at email@example.com.
