Northern Borders Conference 2014 Please join the Northern Borders Coalition and stand up for civil rights in border communities. Border Patrol and Field Operations continue to act with unaccountable disregard for basic human rights and civil rights standards. Following our conference in 2012, the Coalition has made real progress: stronger policies against racial and religious profiling, the use of Border Patrol agents as "translators"and the release of important information from DHS. At this year's conference, we will continue the dialogue between Northern and Southern border communities, and discuss the following issues: Campaigns for greater transparency at Customs and Border Protection Reducing injuries or killings by Border Patrol agents through improved 'use of force' standards and great accountability Reducing local law enforcement's role in enforcing immigration law, including eliminating ICE holds and detainers. Addressing surveillance of Muslim, Arab American, and South Asian communities by the Department of Homeland Security How do innocent travelers clear their names and get off the 'no-fly list'? Making greater use of the FOIA process Improving standards for immigrant kept in border detention facilities Addressing the unaccompanied refugee minor crisis Reducing racial and religious profiling Thanks to our premier sponsor: the UNITED AUTO WORKERS!!
