SAMPLE SCRIPT "Hello, My name is .............. I am calling to urge Senator........ to raise Senate Bill 948. This bill would reduce the maximum sentence of all misdemeanor convictions in Connecticut from 365 to 364 days. This small fix will help many community members avoid serious immigration consequences, such as indefinite detention by ICE and deportation without due process because of a mere misdemeanor conviction.
SB 948 will reduce the maximum sentence of all misdemeanors in Connecticut from 365 days to 364 days. This small reform will help many community members avoid extreme immigration consequences -- including indefinite detention by ICE and deportation without due process -- after they complete their community service, probation, or jail time for a misdemeanor conviction.
