Many members of the community are scared to call the police when they are needed, out of fear of having their immigration status scrutinized.
The Safe Communities Act (S.1401 and H.3573) aims to strengthen communities by barring Massachusetts police from questioning resident’s immigration status. It also protects due process, limits Massachusetts’ notifications to ICE, ends contracts redirecting MA state forces to act as federal immigration agents, and provides updated training for law enforcement agencies.
