Call to Action: No Mas Polimigra BTV Rally and Speak Out

Stand together to demand that the collaboration between the VT police department and deportation agents end! Join No Mas Polimigra on the steps of Burlington City Hall to demand that the Burlington City Council prohibits collaboration between the Burlington Police Department and deportation agents like ICE and border patrol. Then, join them in giving public comment to speak directly to the Burlington City Council to urge that they pass a resolution to codify the separation of BPD and ICE/CBP!

No Mas Polimigra is a campaign started by Migrant Justice. “Polimigra” is a combination of the Spanish words for police (policía) and immigration agents/agencies (migra). It is used to describe when police collaborate with immigration officials. The statewide Fair and Impartial Policing Policy is critical in limiting collaboration between local police and federal immigration
officials, but the current policy contains several dangerous loopholes that allow for collaboration. In 2018, the city of Winooski passed this policy — and it is time for Burlington to do the same. Come to the teach-in on January 21st to learn more about this campaign.
