The message:

Texas should immediately stop intentionally endangering the lives of people seeking protection at the border, and the Department of Homeland Security must act: Send a message to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas today and tell him to decisively end its collusion with Operation Lone Star and do everything in its powers to remove Gov. Abbott's dangerous barriers in the Rio Grande.

The recipient:

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

The impact:

According to recent reports, Texas state troopers working under Gov. Greg Abbott's multi-billion-dollar anti-immigrant initiative – called Operation Lone Star – have been instructed to push young children and nursing mothers back into the Rio Grande. This river is also where Texas officials have been placing razor wire, despite the injuries they know these traps have already caused. These horrific actions are a shock to our conscience: Cruelty to people seeking asylum is not a policy solution.
