#Trump sigue criminalizando a nuestra comunidad migrante. Existe mayor número de arrestos de personas sin récord criminal, más arrestos de personas sin ninguna convicción/sentencia. El año pasado, ICE arrestó a 143,470 inmigrantes indocumentados. Pero la agencia registró tres veces más condenas, lo que significa que muchos fueron reincidentes.

HRW researchers have traveled to interview people who have recently been deported, since President Trump was elected. These are their stories - the first in a series. If you would like to share your story, please contact The Deported - Los Deportados
Friends, allies, colleagues, I had meant to update this group for some time and recent events have finally made me realize I had to do it. As you may know, we published the report based on research announced in this group in June 2015 https://www.hrw.org/report/2015/06/16/price-too-high/us-families-torn-apart-deportations-drug-offenses. I kept this page going to update people on advocacy on this and related issues. We are no longer interviewing people for this report, but we remain vigilant about protecting immigrants' rights as human rights. Please feel free to contact me here or directly if you have anything you would like to report or share. We knew the fight would be hard, and our commitment and resolve have not changed. I look forward to working with many of you in the years to come.
