Maryland Metro IAF leaders march to Homeland Security office in demand of a meeting with ICE.
Metro IAF affiliates AIM, BUILD and PATH, along with the Immigration Outreach Service Center, marched with 50 leaders from Baltimore City Hall to the Department of Homeland Security in demand of a meeting with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Maryland IAF organizations are fighting for ICE to provide more clarity in its detainment and deportation policies. AIM, BUILD, IOSC and PATH are also pushing immigration officers to remove the word “Police” from their uniforms and are pressing ICE to provide information on where they take detained immigrants after their arrest. Metro IAF affiliates have sent three letters to ICE agents since July requesting to meet regarding the detainment and deportation of local undocumented immigrants. All Maryland Metro IAF letters to ICE have gone unanswered.
