Every person should be treated with dignity and respect. But, in the United States, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CPB) get billions every year to jail, abuse and deport immigrants.
ICE and CBP have taken thousands of children away from their parents, abused and neglected people in unsanitary jails and detention centers, and allowed hundreds of people to die in their custody.
We can do better. It’s time for Congress to stop writing a blank check to agencies that waste taxpayer dollars and undermine our values. We need to hold our elected officials accountable. That’s why we’re calling on Congress to cut funding to ICE and CBP, reject new funding requests, and to welcome every immigrant with programs grounded in our communities, instead. It’s time to #DefundHate.
Tell your legislators: Cut funding for ICE and CBP!
