Our Next District Attorney Must Stand Up Against Trump and Barr’s Racist Immigration Policies

US Attorney General William Barr and Mike Schmidt, candidate for Multnomah District Attorney
  1. Not cooperate with ICE. Oregon law is clear: Local law enforcement resources should not be used to help ICE target crime victims, defendants, or witnesses using our courthouses. All Oregonians should feel safe reporting crimes and showing up to court.
  2. Protect immigrant communities. Prosecutors should consider possible immigration consequences when handling criminal cases. It can be fundamentally inequitable when two people commit the same crime and receive the same sentence — yet one is deported while the other is not.
  3. Appoint a hate & bias crimes prosecutor. If elected, I will appoint a deputy to focus on prosecuting hate crimes, tracking hate incidents, and rebuilding trust with immigrant communities and communities of color.
