#OCCUPY THE ESSEX COUNTY FREEHOLDERS! NO MORE for-profit Immigration Detention

Wall Street Execs destroy the economy & get a bailout. Immigrants work hard & end up in jail. Immigrants are the 99%

 Rally & Press Conference in Millitary Park

December 7th

4:00 pm  Marching to Essex County Freeholders Meeting

(456 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd, Room 506, Newark, NJ)

7:00 pm present thousands of signatures on a petition to revoke the ICE contract

Earlier this fall Essex County signed a contract with ICE to detain 1,250 immigrants, at a rate of $108, per person, per day.

The Essex County Freeholders will soon vote on the subcontract which is expected to be awarded to a company known as CEC.

It is no coincidence that: CEC has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the campaigns of Essex County politicians or that one of Christie’s close friends and allies, Bill Palatucci, is currently a Sr. VP for CEC.

 

Essex County must:

  •  Stop profiting from incarceration
  • Stop detaining immigrants
  • Stop treating immigrants like commodities
  • Stop selling out to the 1%
