Campaign: #DefundHate

We need you to join us in cutting off the flow of money that allows the Department of Homeland Security to deport and detain our community members. Money is one of the only barriers to Trump’s DHS fully enacting its hate-fueled detention and deportation nightmare.

Stopping the flow of money is critical to stopping the Trump anti-immigrant agenda. Help us change the way Congress funds DHS – from endless increases to not one dollar for deportation, detention or border militarization.
