ImageSheriff Stanek: No More Deportations!

  • Stop using Hennepin County jail as a deportation machine!
    • Stop cooperating with “Secure Communities”
    • Stop honoring ICE detainer requests

There have been over a million deportations in this U.S. in the last 4 years. Most of them now happen in county jails, through programs like “Secure Communities.” Too many of our families have been torn apart. We say enough is enough — no more deportations! We call on Sheriff Stanek to stop using the county jail as a deportation machine. Specifically we call on him to stop honoring ICE detainer requests. If he is unwilling to do so, we call on the Hennepin County Commissioners to override him since they’re in charge of policy for the county jail.

Take Action!

« CONTACT SHERIFF STANEK at (612) 348-3744 or email
sheriff@co.hennepin.mn.us to tell him no more deportations — stop honoring ICE detainer requests in the county jail!

« CALL YOUR COUNTY COMMISSIONER (612-348-3081 to find out who yours is) and tell them to stop letting Sheriff Stanek use the county jail as a deportation machine — stop honoring ICE detainer requests in the county jail!
