Howard County Coalition for Immigrant Justice’s Response to CB-51 Veto

In response to Calvin Ball's veto of CB-51, the Coalition vows to continue fighting for immigrant justice and vehemently condemns Ball's repeated mischaracterization of the detainees as violent criminals, which has furthered the stereotype that Brown and Black people are dangerous. "If County Executive Ball truly cared about making Howard County an inclusive community that dismantles systemic racism, he would choose not to profit off of the incarceration of Brown and Black people."
