. Call on local law enforcement to focus on protecting our communities, not destroying them;
. Demand that President Obama and Immigration and Customs Enforcement I(CE) immediately halt the Criminal Alien Program, Secure Communities, 287(g), and all other partnerships between ICE and local law enforcement; and
. Call on Congress to Act Now!
