Weekly Update – 6/24/19
Tell your representative to defund hate.
This week the House of Representatives is voting on a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security. The Trump Administration wants a big pile of money so they can fund their machine to intimidate and deport peaceful immigrants and place refugee children in torture-like conditions in camps. Our representatives need to say NO to this. Call them and demand they not approve any funding for Trump’s cruel immigration policies.
