This article will first give a brief overview of the recent history of federal programs to enhance DHS collaboration with local law enforcement in Philadelphia. I will then discuss how these programs were received by Philadelphia’s advocacy community and how grassroots community leadership developed a commitment to fighting for policies that would protect all of Philadelphia’s immigrant residents. I will conclude with an argument that this strong community leadership was crucial in achieving and maintaining Philadelphia’s progressive policies.
