Description

34,500+ passengers have departed Boeing Field on ICE Air deportation flights since 2010, reveals report by University of Washington Center for Human Rights

The machinery of mass deportation, through which millions are separated from their families and communities, is hidden in plain sight. Each year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement removes tens of thousands of people from the US on private charter flights operated out of airports across the country, including Boeing Field in King County. Reports have surfaced of egregious human rights abuses on some flights, and violations of immigrants’ rights to due process are routine. Using the Freedom of Information Act, UW student researchers and the UW Center for Human Rights obtained ICE’s national database tracking these flights, and are following the money to document the corporations and municipalities that profit from ICE Air’s deportation flights.

Join us for a very special presentation and the release of our report.

Speakers will include:

  • Angelina Godoy, Director, UW Center for Human Rights
  • Hamdi Mohamed, Director of Constituent Services, Office of Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA-07)
  • Bunthay Cheam, community organizer with the Khmer Anti-Deportation Advocacy Group of Washington and storyteller
  • Maru Mora Villalpando, co-founder of La Resistencia (formerly Northwest Detention Center Resistance)
