The immigrant community of Port Chester has said decisively and firmly: NO TO ICE (IMMIGRATION CUSTOMS) IN OUR VILLA. We ask the main authorities: Chief of Police, Mayor and City Council to clearly reject and do not accept any collaboration agreement with ICE. Our voices are opposed because the proposal sent by ICE clearly states that it will ask the police to collaborate and VERIFY the immigration status of those who “live in the jurisdiction”. In 8 US Code & 1373 articles (a)(b) says “ADDITIONAL AUTHORITY OF GOVERNMENT ENTITIES, Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, no person or agency may prohibit, or in any way restrict, any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.

Luis Marino, the only Latin Councilman and strong advocate of the migrants said that he will oppose with absolute firmness and called for the community to say NO to this proposal.

** We call our community to action and resistance. Not to allow these policies of fears to continue.
** WE INVITE to sign this petition and send a strong message of action and resistance and in defense of our immigrant community.
** We need all the voices, we need to together protect ourselves and say ENOUGH! NO MORE DEPORTATION
