Call Of The Day: Cut DHS's Massive Budget

The Department of Homeland Security is the Trump administration's key tool for terrorizing immigrants.  DHS is responsible for inflicting heinous abuses on children in its custody – long before they started ripping them away from their families and detaining them as part of the vile family separation policy.  The department has also unleashed ICE to lawlessly antagonize immigrant communities throughout this country by conducting warrantless searches in our homes, workplaces, and daily commutes.  And DHS must be held accountable.

While Congress debates the next funding bill, call on our senators to put DHS in check and refuse to enable its abuses by supplying funds.  Refuse to allow our taxpayer dollars to fund Homeland Security’s heartless policies.  No wall.  No beds.  No more agents.  No family jails.  We won't allow our taxpayer dollars to fund DHS's abuse of immigrants.
