Press Conference and Rally

Equal Rights For All Who Live Here!
Make Newark a Real Sanctuary City!
Close the Essex County Immigrant Detention Jail NOW!

Come out to demand that Essex County immediately terminate their contract with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) to hold immigrant detainees at the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark.

The detention of immigrants, who are not being held on criminal charges, is a clear violation of the Bill of Rights' guarantee that no one is to be deprived of liberty without a criminal charge. The ICE deportation and detention system can only function with the cooperation of local authorities. The fewer places available for ICE to hold detainees, the fewer detainees will be held.
