BREAKING: Congress just approved a whopping $23 billion to fuel DHS’s detention and deportation machine. This is more money to lock up MORE people, to keep building former President Trump’s lethal border wall, and to expand systems that criminalize, surveil, and infringe on the privacy of communities of color. It’s more important than ever to pressure President Biden to finally take a stand for immigrants and people seeking safety.
One year into the Biden administration, more immigrants and asylum-seekers are now locked up by ICE and at risk of deportation, while many others at the southern border are forced back into danger. Nearly all are Black, Brown or Indigenous.
The administration is responsible for the safety of people in its custody, and they are failing. Tens of thousands of lives are at stake.
Take action demanding President Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas free people from ICE detention, and restore access to asylum.
