Georgia Detention Watch: "Our Objectives WE ARE dedicated to stopping the proliferation of 287(g) Agreements between localities and federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials as well as other attempts at local enforcement of immigration laws in Georgia. We deem such programs to be both unjust and unwise public policy. We believe that these programs lead to discrimination and less safe communities for all of us;

WE ARE intent upon organizing to improve the conditions and expose the injustices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention centers as well as other immigrant detention facilities in Georgia. Our ultimate goal is the closure of all such facilities in our state;

WE WILL deploy every skill and tool we possess to accomplish our mission." (More info.)
