Evict ICE out of Pima County Jail


    Hosted by Southern Arizona Sanctuary Coalition and3 others

    “Join us this Saturday to demand Sheriff Napier to evict ICE from the jail and end any collaboration with ICE.

    Sheriff Mark Napier has allowed ICE to have an office inside the jail since May of 2017 to facilitate the deportation of immigrants. Sheriff Napier is carrying out Trump’s agenda to further criminalize our immigrant communities and dehumanize them.

    Tucson community groups are joining the national call to abolish ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, by demanding that Sheriff Napier kick ICE out of the Pima County Jail. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department complies with ICE detainers on undocumented individuals in custody. When ICE places a hold on an individual, this means the Pima County Sheriff’s Department will extend the detention of that individual for ICE to arrive and detain that person. In May of 2017, Sheriff Napier granted an office to ICE representatives inside the jail to facilitate the transfer of undocumented individuals into ICE custody. In these ways, Pima County is complicit with ICE and the racist border enforcement policies of the United States under the Trump administration.

    Join us at 1pm at Vista Del Pueblo Park (1875 W San Marcos Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85713) for a rally with speeches and we start march towards Pima County Jail and gather there for more speakers and chants.

    Bring water, sunblock, umbrellas, and all the energy for a (1) mile march full of art and good energy.

    Banner and poster making party this Thursday August 23 at the Global Justice Center from 6:30-10:00pm.”
