Immigration Detention

Immigration & Detention

Members of the MIWG support immigrants detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and advocate for an end to immigration detention.

We collaborate with the New York Lawyers for the Public Interest Medical Provider Network to evaluate immigrants in detention. Several MIWG members serve on the Steering Committee of the Medical Providers Network

Other ways to get involved in advocacy for immigrants in detention:

  • The New Santuary Coalition supports individuals affected by detention and at risk of deportation.

  • Follow @abolishice_nynj (Instagram) for updates on immigration detention organizing efforts in New York and New Jersey.

Learn more about the Detention Watch Network, which is working nationally on these issues.
