They want more taxpayer money to deport people

Friend -- The White House just requested $3 billion from Congress to implement a discriminatory immigration agenda. We need to make sure they don't get it. What they've asked for is $3 billion in taxpayer money -- yours and mine -- so they can find and deport people with no criminal record, ripping families apart; deny people access to the country they call home; and withhold people's opportunity for a better life, just because of where they come from and how they pray. None of this is OK. And while they've used executive actions that run counter to our country's core values of diversity, inclusion, and fairness, they can't do nearly as much damage without more money from Congress. This is the first time Congress will consider whether or not to use our taxpayer dollars to fund the administration's destructive, divisive, and anti-immigrant agenda. This is a meaningful way to focus our energy, and I know we can count on you to put the pressure on them to say no to this funding. Join this fight now: my.ofa.us/No-To-This-Agenda Without the funding they've requested, this new administration cannot fully implement its agenda -- an agenda that includes building a massive border wall, new detention centers, and hiring thousands of additional agents for a deportation force. This is our elected representatives' chance to say no to this administration's reckless actions targeting immigrant communities in America -- Congress should refuse to go along with these harmful policies and reject this request for funding. And it's up to us to make sure they do. Speak up now: my.ofa.us/No-To-This-Agenda Thanks, Jack Jack Shapiro Director of Policy and Campaigns Organizing for Action
Here's the thing, though: We can help stop it. The new administration continues to push forward with actions that run counter to our country's core values of diversity, inclusion, and fairness.
