Cut DHS's Massive Budget

Earlier this year, Congress denied the president funds to build his border wall – but the president declared a national emergency and funneled funds from the Department of Defense to the Department of Homeland Security in order to build the wall anyway. DHS also grabbed funds from FEMA during hurricane season.

Under the Trump administration, DHS has an unprecedented budget and resources. There is no reason to send even more of our taxpayer dollars to fund its anti-immigrant abuses. If we want to pursue the inclusive, humane values we want as a country, then we must cut DHS's massive budget.

Cut DHS's Massive Budget

As your constituent, I urge you to cut the budget of the Department of Homeland Security, including its sub-agencies ICE and CBP. We must also stop the administration from transferring funds from elsewhere to fuel DHS's anti-immigrant abuses.

Across the country, people widely rejected Trump's anti-immigrant agenda at the ballot box last November -- and Congress has a duty to listen to constituents. I urge you to uphold the will of the people and cut DHS's budget.
