Immigrant Stories: Doctors and Nurses
Since Trump has taken office, the Department of Homeland of Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have aggressively targeted undocumented immigrants. DHS maintains a policy for “sensitive locations” – hospitals, schools, places of worship, and public gatherings – where no immigration enforcement activity should take place unless there is a threat to national security or public safety. Unfortunately, this policy is just a set of vague discretionary guidelines that agents can ignore as they see fit.
In our latest video, Immigrant Stories: Doctors and Nurses, we expose how inhumane immigration policies are forcing people to choose between medical care or deportation. The Protecting Sensitive Locations Act would strengthen and codify the current guidelines, expand the list of sensitive locations to include courthouses, bus stops, and other organizations that serve vulnerable populations, and would prohibit enforcement activity within 1,000 feet of any sensitive location.
