Join community, elected officials and the Rapid Response Network in Santa Clara County at a rally and press conference to expose ICE’s inhumane and unlawful use of its field office in Morgan Hill to tear families apart.

In the past three weeks, ICE arrested dozens of family members, processed and detained them in Morgan Hill—all without access to counsel and in dangerous conditions. Network attorneys went to the field office and learned from ICE officers that they were holding dozens of people in vans for extended period of times, in violation of ICE’s own regulations. One community member was forced to sit in a car for 4-5 hours, out in the cold, between 7am and 1pm. Meanwhile, ICE officers interrogated him and pressured him into signing a deportation order.

ICE and CBP are notorious for the inhumane treatment of immigrant children, youth and adults and for violating their right to due process. As reports circulate regarding the tragic death of a transgender woman and more recently a 7-year-old child in immigration custody, it is imperative that we act to end this horrific practice of putting immigrants in cages, especially when it takes place in our own backyard. Their actions are shocking and appalling and we must hold ICE in Morgan Hill accountable.
