Cancel the contract with ICE!
Petition to Calhoun County Board of Commissioners
We, the undersigned, call upon the Calhoun County, Michigan Board of Commissioners to immediately cancel the contract that allows the Calhoun County jail to be used by Homeland Security’s Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) because:
- ICE is guilty of human rights abuses and violations in rounding up thousands and thousands of peaceful undocumented workers.
- Most recently ICE has viciously separated infants and children from their parents, imprisoning both parents and children for many months. Parents have even been deported without their children.
- Conditions at the Calhoun County jail are not fit for human beings. It has been reported that up to 12 people are packed into tiny cells, food is horrible or even not given, and sanitation and health care conditions are inadequate.
