I couldn’t agree more @WhoopiGoldberg! The Maryland House of Delegates began our effort to reform policing almost a year ago. Now that we’ve passed strong, comprehensive police reform bills, I hope we can serve as a model and have more states follow our lead. #Working4MD
📢☺️🥳BREAKING! #DignityNotDetention PASSES in Maryland’s Judicial Proceedings Committee – with additional policing protections for #immigrants. This is a major victory for immigrants across the state. #MDGA21 #ICEoutofMD
👉🏿Follow this thread for what the bill does & next steps.
I was born in Kingston, Jamaica 🇯🇲and came to the U.S. w/ my mom & brother when I was 5 yo. My family members overcame undocumented status, harsh farm labor & separation to pave the way. ALL immigrants deserve dignity and to live w/o fear.
