Immigrants in Montgomery County are in trouble.
The actions of the Trump administration have already threatened hundreds of thousands of immigrants with deportation. When Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for immigrants from El Salvador and Honduras ends, thousands more Montgomery County residents will lose their legal status — and even more if Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is terminated. As they lose their status and face deportation, about 80% of detained Marylanders have no legal representation.
JUFJ fought for deportation defense for detained MoCo residents, and now we are part of the Montgomery County Trust Act campaign. Click below to get involved in this campaign!
