There's more than one way to stop a deportation.

The latest version of police-ICE collaborative policy, PEP COMM, means that millions of our loved ones are positioned at the dangerous intersection of the criminal justice and immigration legal systems. The criminalization of everyday life continues, and with it deportation of our loved ones. When we say #Not1More, we mean it.
