Do You Know a Student Who Was Detained by ICE After Getting in Trouble at School? Tell us.

Help us report on school discipline policies that have led to deportations.

Leer en español.

As immigration enforcement operations ramp up under President Donald Trump, immigrant students who get in trouble in school are at increasing risk of being deported. Many school districts have passed resolutions pledging to keep Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents off campuses and out of classrooms. But other school districts have remained vague about what information they share with law enforcement officials. We’re looking for cases where suspensions or other school discipline triggered a law enforcement chain that led to a student being detained by ICE.

Help us report on school discipline policies that have led to deportations. Do you know of an instance in which a student was put into deportation proceedings after an incident at school? Are you a student who was detained or deported?

We won’t publish any information you share without your permission. If you’d rather talk on Signal or WhatsApp, which are more secure, send a message to 347-244-2134.
