Call Congress: Cut DHS’s Massive Budget

Our elected representatives must pass a funding bill that holds DHS accountable – and that means cutting its bloated budget. Our taxpayer dollars shouldn't fund abusive immigration policies, or the construction of an unnecessary border wall or barrier.


Update 1/25/19: After initiating the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, President Trump signed a temporary funding bill to reopen the government until February 15, while he continues to push for his border wall. We have until February 15 to keep fighting: No border wall – not now, or ever.

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 tear gassing them and ripping them away from their families and detaining them as part of the vile family separation policy. The department has also unleashed ICE and CBP to lawlessly antagonize immigrant communities throughout this country in our homes, workplaces, and daily commutes. DHS must be held accountable – but instead, Trump wants to the agency an unprecedented budget increase, including $5 billion for a needless border wall.

We call on our senators to refuse to bend to Trump’s border wall obsession. No wall. No beds. No more agents. No family jails. We won't allow our taxpayer dollars to fund DHS's abuse of immigrants.
