Courts Open to All Act: Prohibit warrantless civil arrests of immigrants at Washington State courts. (HB 2567/ SB 6522)
There is strong evidence that many immigrant survivors have decided not to report crimes or seek help because of fears that immigration officials could arrest them if they access the courts for things like Protection Orders. When survivors are not able to reach out for help, it makes our communities less safe. Prohibiting these civil arrests at courthouses is necessary for immigrant survivors to be able to get help for the abuse they are experiencing.
