Statewide campaign against detention centers in Michigan to host first public meeting in Ionia this Saturday

February 14, 2019

Since last October, it has been known that the private company Immigration Centers of America (ICA) has been proposing a 600 bed immigration detention center in Ionia. 

In early January, ICA presented for the first time in front of the Ionia City Commission and one week later a new statewide coalition began meeting to fight the proposed detention center.

Since then, those who have been meeting in Lansing have met several other times and even participated in an action to confront the law firm that is representing ICE, Honigman.

Now, the statewide coalition is hosting a meeting this Saturday in Ionia for those who want to get involved in the campaign. Below is a flyer for the event, which you can share and invite others who want to be involved in the effort to stop the for profit detention center in Ionia and throughout the state.

Recently, people from Ionia and around the state spoke during an Ionia City Council meeting, expressing their opposition to the proposed immigration detention facility and will no doubt be doing more of that in the coming weeks and months.
