Help Bensalem Resist 287gDate: Jan 22 2018, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Location: 2400 Byberry Rd, Bensalem, PA 19020-6101
The recent announcement made by Bensalem’s Public Safety Director, Fred Harran, that Bensalem Police Department has applied to be part of 287g program, in which local police are trained to act as immigration officers, is alarming. Collaboration of local police with ICE opens townships to legal liability, encourages intolerance, and drives immigrant families away. Already, there has been an increase in racial profiling incidents in Bensalem. Community leaders will be speaking out against 287g at the Council Meeting. More information on the event and background on 287g on the Facebook event.
