Who We Are

"From its unique vantage point as the statewide coalition, JDI helps us all connect the dots between policy, practice and services and strengthens our work in the communities we serve." ~ Linda Cavaioli, Executive Director, YWCA of Central Massachusetts

Mobilizing for Massachusetts Immigrants

The Constitution protects all people in our Commonwealth.

Including immigrants.

Support the Massachusetts Safe Communities Act

The Safe Communities Act would protect the civil rights of all state residents by making sure our tax dollars are not used to help the Trump administration deport immigrant families or to create a Muslim registry. This bold new version of the Trust Act is sponsored by Sen. Jamie Eldridge and Rep. Juana Matías.

SUMMARY

  • No state support for Muslim registry.Prohibits access to information in state databases for use in any federal registry program based on national origin, religion or other protected characteristics.
  • Ensures Basic Due Process Rightsfor people detained in state and local facilities for civil immigration violations. Requires informing detainees that they have the right to decline an interview with ICE agents, and to have their own attorney present (at their own expense) if they so choose.
  • Use police resources to fight crime, not separate families.Ensures that state, local and campus police don’t participate in immigration enforcement activities, including inquiries, investigations, raids, arrests or detentions that are based solely on immigration status.
  • Prohibits agreements with DHS that deputize local officers as immigration agents, including county officers in Bristol and Plymouth sheriff's departments.
