Statement: The Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC) Calls for Justice for Immigrants in Detention and the Defunding of Immigration and Customs Enforcement

Denver, CO - A whistleblower from the Irwin County immigration detention center in Georgia reports a variety of medical abuses perpetrated against immigrant detainees by ICE officials including forced hysterectomies and “jarring medical neglect” during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. CIRC condemns these atrocities and calls for justice for detained immigrants, the immediate shutdown of every detention center, and an end to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). 

Marching Forward – 2020 Summer Newsletter

It goes without saying that 2020 has been challenging. The COVID-19 pandemic has altered every aspect of life in Colorado while our state's immigrants and communities of color have been disproportionately affected by the crisis. Though CIRC's offices remain closed, we are working as hard as ever remotely to continue the fight for the well-being of all Coloradans. We have made important progress in our campaigns, advocacy, and relief work this year, and we are very excited for the 2020 Member Assembly that will convene virtually in July to select next year's legislative campaign goals. Meanwhile, we continue to fight for immigrant justice one zoom call at a time.

Marcha adelante – boletín verano 2020

No hace falta decir que 2020 ha sido un desafío. La pandemia de COVID-19 ha alterado todos los aspectos de la vida en Colorado, mientras que los inmigrantes y las comunidades de color de nuestro estado se han visto desproporcionadamente afectados por la crisis. Aunque las oficinas de CIRC permanecen cerradas, estamos trabajando tan duro como siempre para continuar la lucha por el bienestar de todos los habitantes de Colorado. Hemos logrado importantes avances en nuestras campañas, abogacía y trabajo de ayuda comunitaria este año, y estamos muy entusiasmados con la Asamblea de Miembros de CIRC de 2020 dónde se reunirán más de 200 líderes virtualmente en julio para seleccionar los objetivos de la campaña legislativa del próximo año. Mientras tanto, seguimos luchando por la justicia de los inmigrantes una llamada de zoom a la vez.
