For too long, our representatives have said they care about our communities while simultaneously funding aggressive immigration enforcement and deadly immigration jails. Cutting the flow of money is critical to stopping Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.
We want our tax dollars used to strengthen our communities by investing in education, housing, and health care programs that increase well-being, not bankroll xenophobic policies. Demand Congress #DefundHate and divest from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Take action today.
- Call your Member of Congress to #DefundHate!
Use the below script as a guide to call or email your representative and senators about what you want to see in next year’s Fiscal Year 2021 funding bill:
“Hello, I am a constituent in your district/state and I am calling/emailing to urge you to fight for funding that reflects the values of our community. Your spending decisions have the power to help or harm us, so I am urging you to divest from harmful immigration enforcement carried out by ICE and CBP and invest instead in [x] for the people in your district/state. You need to hold these agencies accountable by ensuring that their Fiscal Year 2021 appropriations include dramatic funding cuts, and stand for programs that actually support your constituents.”
