#TakeAction – July 15, 2019
Hey team, today is rough. One of our neighbors in the 8th (in Klahanie/Sammamish) was picked up yesterday by ICE. Let’s all come together today and ask our members of Congress to DEFUND HATE. #TakeAction
Call Congresswoman Schrier and Senators Murray & Cantwell, tell them to Defund Hate in the DHS appropriations bill this year by cutting funding for ICE and CBP, including getting rid of the slush fund for ICE.
The biggest fight on immigration this year will be over funding. While Democratic control of the House has given us a firewall against some of the worst Republican attacks, Trump’s attacks against immigrants continue. He shut down the government for over a month in an effort to get his hateful wall and has already requested billions more for ICE and CBP in next year’s “FY20” budget. He hopes to use the money to pay for his wall, more ICE and CBP agents, and more cages for immigrant families. The appropriations process is our best chance to act to stop Trump’s deportation machine. If you care about ending Trump’s racist immigration policies—like separating, caging, and tear gassing families—make a call today and tell your Member of Congress to cut funding for ICE and CBP, and get rid of the slush fund that will allow ICE to continue terrorizing immigrant communities.
