Immigrants in Mississippi have always been an important part of our state’s history, culture, and economy — but immigrant communities continue to be profiled, harassed, detained, and demonized by extremist politicians and the militarized law enforcement agencies they control. We at the ACLU of Mississippi are committed to defending those rights in courtrooms, at the state legislature, and in communities large and small throughout the state.
We are working to:
• Promote and protect immigrant rights,
• Create public awareness about immigrant rights and the illegal denial or disenfranchisement of those rights,
• Educate immigrants about their rights and responsibilities, and
• Advocate for favorable local, state, and national immigrant rights and policy reforms.
