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

There are people outside of the most vile parts of Trump’s base celebrating the president’s zero-tolerance policy (aka locking up immigrant children of asylum seekers): the companies that profit from his policy.

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.

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: earlier this week, 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.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling the Justice Department to reject Trump’s “hereby demand” for baseless investigation into Obama administration, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
