Wednesday, June 27 - Call to Defund ICE / Register Voters at Saturday’s March / Abolish ICE Rally

Actions You Can Take Today

 

Action 1: Tell Congress to Defund Family Separation And Immigration Detention

U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) uses billions of taxpayer dollars to separate parents from their children at the border and lock up 40,000 people every day in an abusive detention system, including asylum seekers. Congress has the power to cut off funding to stop family separation and mass incarceration.  

Tell your representative and senators to stop funding efforts to rip families apart, and lock up and deport our immigrant neighbors!

Call Senator Duckworth | DC: 202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC: 202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952
Find your Representative

Script: Hi, my name is {NAME} and I'm a constituent in the {ZIP CODE} and member of Indivisible. I'm calling to ask {Representative or Senator's name} to cut funding for family separation and ICE's abusive immigration detention and deportation system. We must not be complicit in these human rights abuses. Our taxpayer dollars should be used to strengthen families and communities, not tear them apart. Please pass my message on. Thank you.
