Vote “NO” on H.R. 3697, the Criminal Alien Gang Removal Act: H.R. 3697, the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act, passed the House on September 14, 2017 and was referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. H.R. 3697 creates a new sweeping definition of the term “criminal gang,” promotes widespread racial and ethnic profiling of young people and communities, and dramatically expands the detention of non-citizens, putting many members of our communities at risk. This letter, signed by members of NJJDPC, urges the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote no on the bill.
