Today’s Action: Contact the CEOs profiting from Trump’s zero-tolerance policy

Things are supposed to be bad when fascists and neocons control all three branches of government. But your efforts are making a difference, not just in policy but in people’s lives. So keep up the good work, and remember: Election Day is coming.

Today’s Action: Contact the CEOs profiting from Trump’s zero-tolerance policy

The New York Times recently examined the Trump administration’s connections to the companies profiting from Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy, who have collectively hauled in $1 billion from recent tactics. No surprises…”The president’s education secretary provided funding to one of the groups. His defense secretary sat on the board of another. Mr. Trump’s own inauguration fund collected $500,000 from two private prison companies housing detained migrant families.”

From private prisons to transportation services, shelter care to tech support, it really takes a village to indefinitely jail infants and push devastated immigrant parents to suicide. These companies are raking it in from the federal government off the lives of thousands in desperate need…and behind Trump racist policies are big dollar signs urging him on.

That’s why the good people of Sleeping Giant have compiled a contact sheet of at least 13 companies and the email address for each CEO that are actively assisting Trump in his modern day internment camps — and they don’t get to hide in the dark any longer.

Call or email the CEOs of companies that are directly profiting from Trump’s zero-tolerance policy. Demand they reject any further participation in detaining immigrant children and asylum seekers.

Your public pressure is working: last month, a federal judge ordered Trump to create a plan to reunite separated children with their parents, which is a great start.

But Trump still has leeway to jail children up to 20 days and he’s fighting for longer. And 20 days is 20 days too long — still plenty of business for the companies assisting him in this humanitarian crisis.

We must demand that capitalist interests not win out over human rights. It’s time to make a stand in this country and take on the corporations who assist in spreading hate and abuse of vulnerable immigrant communities.

Email or call the leaders of the companies actively assisting Trump in his zero-tolerance campaign against asylum seekers. Because you can bet these CEOs are sending a healthy donation to Trump’s reelection campaign…unless we stop the flow of the money.
