Mere weeks before Congress is set to return from August recess and debate funding for government agencies including Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), ICE is making a move to steal funds from other agencies just like they did in 2018.
It is unacceptable that ICE is subverting Congress’s authority to decide how much funding they should receive. That they are doing so in order to expand their abuses, such as conducting raids like the one that resulted in 680 workers being arrested in Mississippi or caging people indefinitely in concentration camps, makes it even worse. That’s why we need Democrats to fight back in September by ending ICE’s transfer and reprogramming authority once and for all. You can read our resource here to learn more.
Call your members of Congress today and tell them to reject ICE's money grab!
