🔶 Tell Congress to Investigate Trump’s Plan for Mass Family Arrests
(ACTION) Call Congresswoman Schrier and Senators Cantwell and Murray, ask them to speak out against the Administration’s plans for mass arrests of immigrant families.
The Washington Post revealed that Kirstjen Nielsen, the now-former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary who oversaw the Trump administration’s policies around family separation and putting kids into cages, was forced to resign in part because she had “challenged a secret White House plan to arrest thousands of parents and children in a blitz operation against migrants in 10 major U.S. cities.” Before you start feeling any sympathy for Nielsen, the Washington Post revealed that Nielsen’s concerns were “mostly operational and logistical and not as a result of ethical concerns about arresting families.” Of course, the Trump administration won’t give up on a plan to inflict even more cruelty upon families simply because that plan is operationally and logistically flawed. This means that we need to convince our members of Congress to start raising questions about the existence of this program now before it is implemented.
