Right Now Congress is Deciding Where They Stand
Tell Them No to Expanded Walls and Immigrant Detention
Congress made it very clear: building a border wall is not a national emergency. Yet, the Trump administration continues to transfer money from schools, disaster relief, and childcare centers to keep expanding immigrant detention and the border wall.
Behind the scenes, your legislators are deciding where to draw the line on this. Your member of Congress can help stop this abusive practice, but they need to hear from you.
This is about more than dollars and cents. The Trump administration’s unsanctioned transfer of these funds is worsening the humanitarian crisis on our southern border. Children are being detained inappropriately and asylum seekers deported back to the violence they were fleeing.
Congress has the ultimate authority over spending, and they can stop this.
Will you ask your members of Congress to end to this dangerous spending in future spending bills? Urge them to demand accountability and limit this administration’s overspending on immigrant detention and border militarization.
