'Tis the Season...' Children Affected By Deportation Write Letters to the Board of Supervisors

In the spirit of the holiday season, this past Dec. 11th children wrote "Dear Supervisor" letters to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. The children wrote to ask the board to refrain from proposing harmful policies that entangle ICE with local law enforcement and create stress and worry in our families. This action was part of the FIRE Coalition's ongoing work to ensure that local jails will not respond to ICE's detainer or notification requests.

Listen to their letters here.
