We need police to help keep communities safe. But recent media reports have shown that NYPD has engaged in extensive and probably illegal mapping of Muslims, profiling and infiltration of the mosques, cafes, student organizations and other community organizations. NYPD has established partnerships with the CIA. NYPD has Stop & Frisk policies that have targeted millions of people of color in the last 5 years. NYPD has also assigned aggressive informants who target and corrupt the vulnerable in our community who have no link to actual terror groups and who end up in solitary confinement for many years after.
Other agencies like FBI and ICE/immigration have also gone after many good Muslims and destroyed families. Young People whose parents came here and did not become permanent residents are at risk too. Some immigration attorneys are incompetent and make matters worse. How can we change this situation? What are your rights?
