Santa Barbara- Deportation and harassment of immigrants is rapidly increasing in Santa Barbara County. PUEBLO and community allies have put together three informative events to create awareness and inform the community about the increasing collaboration between Immigration Custom Enforcement and our local law enforcement agencies and its impact on public safety.
The first event will be a forum where PUEBLO’s executive director, Belén Seara, will discuss how programs such as Secure Communities are unrealistic solutions to the issue of immigration and in reality only make matters worse.

PUEBLO has invited lawyers from our communities to train immigrants and immigrant rights activists on how to exercise our rights at the time of an encounter with law enforcement and what are the best steps to take to handle such an encounter. PUEBLO will host two workshops one in Santa Maria and the other one in Santa Barbara.
