Victory in Norristown!

JusticeCheck out this article by WHYY “Traffic stops become immigration stops in Deleware Valley.” on how last year in Norristown checkpoints and routine traffic stops were being used as immigration traps for immigrants. At the end of the article the new interim Chief of Police in Norristown is quoted as saying, “ICE won’t be back when his officers do checkpoints this summer.”  Victory! Over the past year Juntos’ work has expanded to not just Philadelphia but also the neighboring city of Norristown as we were the first on the scene with local community leaders in shedding light on the human rights abuses that were happening at the hands of local police and Immigration. We will continue to build power in Norritown to ensure that human rights abuses like these come to an end.  We thank all of you who have supported us in this.
