Today’s Action: Fight Trump’s Anti-Immigrant Budget and #DefundHate

Trump is hard at work again in his vicious attack against immigrants — his budget request for the next fiscal year includes billions of dollars more for the two weaponized arms of the federal government: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protections (CBP). More wall, more family prisons, more deportations.

The Defund Hate Campaign is the direct response to this, fighting Trump’s financial demands for propping up his xenophobia, and dedicated to turning tax dollars toward progressive values and community-driven needs like education, housing, and healthcare.

Luckily, funding levels live with Congress, not Trump — so we have the direct ability to influence exactly how much, or how little, Trump gets of his request. And our goal is to #DefundHate.

Call or email your Representative, and if they are on the House Appropriations Committee, tell them to:

  1. Cut funding for ICE and CBP down to “FY16 levels” (the last year President Obama was in office). This is a starting point — it should be much lower —

  2. And put a stop to ICE stealing funds from other Department of Homeland Security accounts, as it has under Trump…ICE should only receive the money it has been Congressionally approved for.

If they aren’t on the Appropriations, call and ask them to submit this request to the committee, or to sign on to the “Jayapal-Torres-Chu Dear Colleague” letter making that ask.

Trump is working overtime to redefine American through his white supremacist lens. That’s why we need to work overtime to stop him.
