Support Deportation Defense Fund

The Montgomery County Council held a hearing on May 1 on a bill to fund the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights (CAIR) Coalition for one year so that every Montgomery County resident who is detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and meets federal indigence guidelines will receive legal representation. 

We are sorry to tell you that the County Council acquiesced to the demands of the State’s Attorney, John McCarthy.  The Council amended its special appropriation and added an extensive list of criminal convictions that would render a person ineligible for representation by the CAIR Coalition. This list, based on past convictions for which a person has already completed his/her sentence, includes misdemeanors and nonviolent offenses, not just serious felonies.  In addition, the Council has acceded to McCarthy’s demands that there be almost no exceptions made to these criminal exclusions. This means that the CAIR Coalition cannot use County funds to challenge the deportation of a refugee or of someone who may be tortured upon return to their country. The resulting program would be far more restrictive than others around the country.

As a result, the CAIR Coalition is withdrawing its request for the money.  The MoCo Deportation Defense Coalition supports CAIR’s decision and opposes the resolution in its current state.  Join us in silent protest at the formal vote on the functionally-defunct resolution on Tuesday at 1:30 pm.
