Indefensible: Immigrants Trapped by the Criminalization of the Immigration Process

JUSTICEAID PRESENTS LOS LOBOS IN SUPPORT OF THE IMMIGRANT DEFENSE PROJECT
Please join us as we work together to end the vilification of immigrants and the violence of detention
and deportation that is causing deep harm to our communities.

Twenty years ago, there was an emerging human rights crisis: the targeting of immigrants for mass imprisonment and deportation. Today, the United States operates the largest immigration policing, detention, and deportation system in the world—and it’s growing. The war on immigrants has escalated to new heights, through campaigns driven by fear, hatred, racism, and lies. Working at the intersection of racially biased U.S. criminal and immigration systems, the Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) is making major strides in securing fairness and justice for immigrants in the United States. JusticeAid is excited to help, and we appreciate your support.

The Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) fights for fairness and justice for all immigrants at the intersection of the systematically unjust criminal and immigration systems. IDP was founded 20 years ago to combat an emerging human rights crisis: the criminalization of immigrants targeted for mass incarceration and exile. As the ICE deportation complex has exploded, IDP has continued to confront this crisis head-on by developing deep expertise and interventions through a multi-pronged strategy.

Rooted in the principle that no one is disposable, IDP is uniquely positioned to fortify the frontline struggle through community defense, policy reform, legal support and training, impact litigation, and communications and advocacy to fight back against mass criminalization, detention, and deportation.
