Community Board 11 condemns the Trump administration’s use of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids to terrorize immigrant communities, predominately of color, throughout the United States. The Trump administration’s continued attacks on communities of color strike the conscience and demand action.
Community Board 11 has one of the largest immigrant populations in all of New York City. For over a century, immigration has made East Harlem great. Trump’s rhetoric and ICE enforcement actions have struck fear in the hearts of many who reside in Community Board 11. ICE raids don’t just target those on final deportation orders; they target our families, our neighbors, and our community.
We hereby publicly condemn the ICE Raids threating our community; and commit to working with our elected officials and community-based organizations to ensure that Community Board 11 remains a welcoming place for all members of our community, irrespective of immigration status.
Community Board 11 (CB11) represents the community of East Harlem in the Borough of Manhattan, a geographic area also known as Community District 11 which is bordered by East 96th Street to the south, Fifth Avenue to the west, the East River and Harlem River to the east, East 142nd Street to the north, and includes Randall’s Island and Wards Island as well as Marcus Garvey Park.
