Smith, Jayapal to Hold Press Conference Calling for Reforms to Broken Immigration Detention System

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, October 16, Representatives Adam Smith (WA-09) and Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) will host a press conference on their recently introduced Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, legislation to reform systemic problems in our immigration detention system.

The current detention system is inhumane, unjust and driven by private, for-profit corporations. The Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act will end the use of private facilities and repeal mandatory detention, while restoring due process, oversight, accountability and transparency to the immigration detention system.

Who:

  • Rep. Adam Smith (WA-09)
  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA-07)
  • Jorge L. Barón, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project
  • Roxana Norouzi, OneAmerica
  • Victoria Mena, WA Immigrant Solidarity Network / Colectiva Legal del Pueblo
  • Yvette Maganya, OneAmerica Youth Leader, niece of a survivor of the Northwest Detention Center


When: Monday, October 16, 2017, 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Where: Northwest Immigrant Rights Project
615 2nd Ave, 1st floor atrium, Seattle, WA 98104

The press conference will be streamed live via Rep. Smith here and Rep. Jayapal here.

Media interested in attending the press conference are requested to RSVP to Rebecca Bryant with Rep. Smith at rebecca.bryant@mail.house.gov or Omer Farooque with Rep. Jayapal at omer.farooque@mail.house.gov.
