Today’s Action: Stop the DHS from using disaster relief funds for ICE camps

As Hurricane Dorian having ransacked Grand Bahama Island and climbing the United States’s Southeastern coast, residents from Florida to Virginia are tracking the deadly storm’s every move.

As they should be. Hurricanes are massively destructive, accounting for $28 billion in government costs each year — just a fraction of the overall cost. In 2017, Hurricane Maria caused $90 billion in damages to Puerto Rico, and Hurricane Harvey came in at $125 billion. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) foots the bulk of desperately-needed governmental support in the aftermath of these storms.

But perhaps not this year…since the Department of Homeland Security has just announced they’ll be diverting $271 million from other sources to pay for more ICE detention beds and a program to return Central American migrants to Mexico. These funds include over $100 million of disaster relief funds from FEMA and $24 million from the Coast Guard.

Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them to oppose the Department of Homeland Security’s reallocation of funds from FEMA to ICE. Demand they protect our disaster relief funds for real emergencies…not the one Trump has fabricated at our borders.

This unlawful move flies in the face of Congress, which sets the budget for our government — as mandated by the constitution — including how much Trump can and cannot spend on his war against migrants. After June’s emergency funding bill, in which Congress did not approve additional funds for new beds in detention centers, Trump has responded by…taking the money anyway.

With these stolen funds, ICE will be able to detain up to 50,000 immigrants on any given day…more taxpayer money to prop-up concentration camps instead of assisting communities slammed by tropical storms and other disasters. This outcry must be long and loud – it isn’t what we want, and it’s not what Congress has directed. What checks and balances?

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they speak out and stop DHS from stealing FEMA funds to support Trump’s war on migrants. Tell them to keep Trump to the budget they passed in June, not the unconstitutional one he has created against the will of the people.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to stop Trump’s un-American plan to deny automatic citizenship to the kids of troops and workers serving our country overseas, 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.
