#IIRIRA enabled the creation of the mass detention and deportation apparatus we have today and it’s time to repeal it!

 

25 years ago, former President Clinton signed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) into law that has destroyed millions of families. For over two decades this xenophobic law has strengthened the collaboration between local police and immigration agents, it has expanded the grounds for deportation, and has allowed due process to be eliminated for many immigrants. It’s time Congress fix our immigration laws so that they reflect our reality: immigrants –– be it asylum seekers, refugees or migrants –– have been a blessing to the nation.

#IIRIRA enabled the creation of the mass detention and deportation apparatus we have today!

 

It’s been 25 years since former President Clinton signed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) that has destroyed millions of families. Congress has failed to meaningfully address the harms caused by this white supremacist and xenophic. It’s time Congress fix our immigration laws so that they reflect our reality: immigrants –– be it asylum seekers, refugees or migrants –– have been a blessing to the nation.
