TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress to Invest in Community Wholeness & Cut Funds for Deportation, Detention, and Border Militarization

Action Alerts

Right now, Congress is considering the level of funding for detention, deportation, and border militarization for next fiscal year (FY 2020). These funds are at the expense of investments in education, healthcare, and humanitarian assistance. Every dollar that fuels the machinery behind unjust detention, deportations, and a militarized border serves only to dismantle community wholeness and separate families. Congress has the “power of the purse,” so it is critical that Senators and Representatives hear loudly and clearly that their constituents want them to cut this harmful spending and instead prioritize human needs, community-based, non-restrictive alternatives to detention, and relief and support to communities.
