We do. And we know you do, too.

America’s broken immigration system has led to a civil rights crisis:

* Immigrant homes are routinely raided
* Hundreds of thousands of people are imprisoned, some indefinitely and without access to medical care
* Thousands are deported away from their families without a fair day in court
* And now New York Senator Charles Schumer is proposing that all U.S. workers carry a biometric identity card as a way to clamp down on undocumented immigration

Immigration Reform in New York: Who Cares?

That's why it's so important that you contact Senator Schumer, Senator Gillibrand and your Congressional representative now.

Tell them to support comprehensive immigration reform that protects everyone’s rights and liberties this year.
Take Action Now

This is a crisis in every sense.

Year after year, Congress has let the politics of fear stop it from addressing this dire situation. And the window for reform is quickly closing yet again.
The stakes are too high to let that happen.

Visit the NYCLU’s brand new immigration reform website to find out how you can get involved online or join a local NYCLU Activist Task Force. Join with us and our allies across the state to defend civil liberties and put an end to this crisis once and for all.
