Immigration

Michael has a long record of working to ensure all Bostonians are treated fairly, regardless of their citizenship status. He has taken steps to protect Boston residents with Temporary Protected Status who have sought refuge in the city, and to ensure our local police are not working with federal officials on immigration matters.

Michael supported the Trust Act in 2014, which stopped ICE from forcing the Boston Police Department to help them detain undocumented workers who had not committed a crime. In the light of current administration in DC, he has supported recent efforts on the City Council to strengthen the Trust Act.
