Educating Immigrant Families on Their Legal Rights
The Immigration Task Force Monterey County is a group of concerned individuals and organizations who share the belief that our constitution guarantees specific inalienable rights to everyone living on U.S. soil, regardless of documentation status. We seek to inform local immigrant families of their legal rights, help them prepare in case of detention by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or other agencies, connect them with legal resources, and help defend them against any violation of those rights. We seek to build a strong community coalition based on mutual respect and dedicated to ensuring that all immigrants may live here in peace and without fear.
"My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too.”
