Stop the Human Rights Violations at the Border and in Detention Centers!

Body

The immigration crisis on our country’s southern border and in the detention centers around the country, including Homestead, Florida, continues to worsen. Human rights violations are constantly taking place, affecting infants to the elderly. People are dying, families and children have been separated, people are being held in terrible conditions, and the administration is planning to establish military-controlled concentration camps to house people crossing the border, including those lawfully seeking asylum. Trump continues to put immigration hard-liners approved by the architect of this evil immigration policy, Stephen Miller, in charge of immigration and border control. It’s time our Democratic elected officials spoke out in the strongest possible terms against the injustice at the border and started working on a real solution to the immigration problem. 

We must tell our MOCs that we demand that children and families be held in clean and safe conditions and that the time they are held in detention be limited.

In the upcoming budget battle, one of the ways House Democrats can make a difference is by refusing to appropriate funds that allow the Trump administration to continue its hate-fueled policies, including by cutting funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and eliminating a slush fund that ICE can use to increase migrant detention. Tell your MOCs to defund hate.

Script: My name is XXX and my address and zip code is XXX. I am a proud member of Palm Beach Indivisibles. I demand that you speak out loudly and often about the human rights violations that are happening on our country’s southern border and in immigrant detention centers in the U.S.  I won’t stand for the actions being taken by the Trump administration. I expect you to  provide immigrant children and families in U.S. detention centers with safe, clean and humane conditions and to make sure they are not held indefinitely. I also expect you to cut funding for ICE and CBP, and get rid of the slush fund that will allow ICE to continue terrorizing immigrant communities.
