Valentine’s Day is a day to show love and appreciation for the important people in our lives. Take a moment on this holiday to show immigrants that you stand with them by taking action to #DefundHate. Action on this day can influence the lifetimes of immigrants and their loved ones. The government could shut down again tomorrow, but our voices can play a part in stopping it! Join faith and community leaders in calling Congress and urging them to prevent funding for deportation, detention, and militarization. Ask them to ensure that tomorrow’s hearing does not implement more drastic changes to our already immoral immigration system. ICE took more people into custody than Congress allowed in 2018, and continued to get funding throughout the last government shutdown. This unethical favoritism has to end now in favor of humane immigration reform.
It is not too late to show your love for our community and your desire to #DefundHate!
Reject funding for a border wall or more detention beds
Keep the government open!
Block ICE from stealing funds from other government accounts (i.e. FEMA)
Stop criminalization of immigrants!
Reject funding that militarize, incarcerate, or build barriers that would threaten our neighbors and communities.
These extreme militarization tactics harm our neighbors each and every day. As a community rooted in love and faith, we believe in the inherent dignity of every person and the necessity of liberation in this country. Government shutdowns cause far more harm than good, especially to our most vulnerable communities - those we are called to love. Call, tweet or share now to show love for your neighbors and community by demanding to #DefundHate.
