Keisha Lance Bottoms on Immigration

 

 


Offer pro bono assistance to immigrants facing deportation

Bottoms will expand the City of Atlanta's new deportation defense legal program, which offers pro bono legal assistance to immigrants facing deportation in our communities. We must not waver in our support for our foreign-born residents when the regional federal ICE office reports an 80 percent increase in arrests under President Trump.

Executive Order: end receiving ICE detainees

Bottoms has signed an Executive Order directing Department of Corrections to take the necessary action to permanently stop receiving ICE detainees. "As we work to achieve our vision of an Atlanta that is welcoming and inclusive, with equal opportunity for all, it is untenable for our City to be complicit in the inhumane immigration policies that have led to the separation of hundreds of families at the United States southern border," said Bottoms.
