Immigrant Justice

The struggle for immigrant justice is part of the broader struggle for racial justice. US immigration policy has historically been rooted in racism with entry restrictions and exploitation based on race. In deep partnership with grassroots groups across the country, Advancement Project’s Immigrant Justice Project seeks to end the unnecessary criminalization of immigrants. Our team provides support through a combination of policy, advocacy, organizing, communications and litigation to dismantle systems that oppress immigrants and communities of color. We help build bridges between immigrant communities and other communities of color, and seek to change the public discourse that dehumanizes and demonizes immigrants.
We Must End Immigration Detention TODAY!

The “immigration detention system” dehumanizes individuals at every level. “Detention centers” are prisons with atrocious conditions. The immigration detention is part of this country’s mass incarceration crisis. We’ve seen this firsthand.
