3/5: Tell Biden to close Trump’s concentration camps without delay!

When she was still a Presidential candidate, Vice President Harris visited the Homestead Child Detention Center in 2019, vowing that one of her first steps if elected would be to shut down private detention facilities. And in that same year, Homestead was closed…following reports of sexual abuse and violence.

But President Biden is reopening the facility. And the site itself is exposed to toxic chemical runoff and has dangerous noise levels from the next-door military base runway.

President Biden has ended Trump’s Zero Tolerance/family-separation policy, stopped construction on the border wall, and announced his plan to grant 11 million undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. Now he MUST close the camps!

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they publicly push Biden to keep his campaign promises to close the camps and release ICE detainees.

Over 14,000 immigrants are currently in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. And over half of these detainees have tested positive since the onset of the pandemic. And no wonder: the crowded conditions and lack of access to basic sanitization is a breeding ground for the virus.

Although Biden has halted new family separations, the inhumane conditions suffered under Trump have not changed enough – and now, we’ve seen them expanded. If we are ever to move beyond the horrific Trump years, Biden must fulfill his promise to close the camps.

Email or call your Members of Congress and demand they pressure President Biden to close ICE/CBP concentration camps!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to support the vaccine, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
