When the government has the power to deny legal rights and due process to one vulnerable group, everyone’s rights are at risk. The ACLU of Indiana is fighting against the Muslim ban to defend the rights of undocumented Hoosiers. One of the ways we are continuing that battle is in our defense of Syrian refugees in Indiana. In 2015, the state of Indiana, under then Governor Mike Pence, attempted to prevent Syrian refugees from entering the state of Indiana by denying funding to agencies serving the refugees. The ACLU, on behalf of Exodus Refugee Immigration, successfully prevented the state's unconstitutional actions. Today, we are working to ensure that Constitutional rights are given to all, regardless of immigration status. We provide Know Your Rights training and education to make Hoosiers aware of their constitutional rights and protections.
