Not one penny more for family separation, “zero tolerance” prosecutions, detention and deportation.

After thousands of people rose up this summer against separating families and criminalizing immigrants, the White House and ICE are now trying to pump even more money into detaining, deporting, and prosecuting our friends and loved ones.

As Congress debates plans to fund the government for Fiscal Year 2019, the Trump administration is asking for billions of dollars in new funding for ICE, Border Patrol, and the Department of Justice—the same agencies that carried out the family separation policy. Any new money for the agencies that detain, deport, and prosecute immigrants will mean more parents being taken from their children and more people torn from our communities.

Love Resists, a joint campaign of the UUA and UUSC, and Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice (UUSJ) are joining the Interfaith Week of Action for Immigrant Rights, led by the Interfaith Immigration Coalition (IIC). We have a simple message for Congress:

Not one penny more for family separation, “zero tolerance” prosecutions, detention and deportation.
