Philly’s Historic Executive Order Draws 

Praise from National Advocates

 

In response to Philadelphia Mayor Nutter’s announcement of an Executive Order to effectively end the city’s submission to ICE hold requests, leading national civil rights and labor organizations gave the following statements. 

 

Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director, National Day Laborer Organizing Network: 

 

“Philadelphia’s new policy makes the city safer, it protects civil rights, it constitutes an exemplary policy of inclusion, and it sends a clear message that the city values the contributions of its immigrant population.   Whereas shameful federal deportation dragnet programs like SCOMM  have created a culture of suspicion that has divided communities and led to Arizonification,  Philadelphia’s new policy represents the turning tide.  We expect more cities will follow Philly’s lead in weeks and months ahead, and we congratulate and thank everyone involved in this historic policy.”
