Today’s Action: Continue to push to #CloseTheCamps

Vice President Mike Pence visited our concentration camps and pretended everything was fine, while communities pushed back against ICE’s much-publicized raids. And Trump announced migrants who first pass through other countries must first apply for asylum there before applying at our borders, thus illegally denying support to nearly all Central and South Americans in need.

All in one week.

And Congress – including some Democrats – is on the verge of awarding Trump a $387 million slush fund for even more hate-fueled deportation camps, raids, and more in the upcoming budget.

It is more important than ever, for the sake of those suffering, for those who have no resources, and for our own individual and national consciences that we do not give up, do not back down during this time of crisis. If you’ve already called, it’s time to call again, and keep calling until they #CloseTheCamps.

Two actions to take TODAY:

  1. Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress. Tell them to #DefundHate by cutting the budget for ICE and CBP in the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill, and remove entirely the $387 million slush fund.
  2. Call or email your Governor, and demand they immediately shut down any privately-run concentration camps in your state, and put the pressure on the White House to remove any federally-run camps. Or, tweet at them with hashtag #CloseTheCamps.

We have to wonder whether some Democrats voting to fund these policies truly have the backs of those they claim to represent and believe in the values that we — their grassroots supporters, donors, and voters — hold. Just like the GOP, they too must be brought into the light and held accountable. This is our chance to do just that, and it is our moral responsibility to seize our moment.
