House Republicans will introduce a border militarization and family separation bill this week that would waste more than $20 billion on Trump’s vanity wall and hire thousands of unaccountable border agents, while holding Dreamers and children at the border hostage. Trump is ripping children from their parents in the southern border region as a negotiating tactic to get his vanity wall and hire thousands of unaccountable border agents that only serve to further separate and terrorize communities.
Votes are expected on a draconian restrictionist and anti-family immigration bill fashioned and championed by speaker Paul Ryan that holds Dreamer protections and children hostage for border militarization money. Contrary to the false rhetoric by some Republicans about this bill, the so-called “compromise” bill will do nothing to keep children from being separated from their parents.
This border militarization and family separation bill would also make historic cuts to the number of immigrants who can legally immigrate, jail families and kids by funding Trump’s deportation force, and trade the safety of Dreamers for that of their parents and loved ones. We need to call congress and tell them to vote NO on this bill that will militarize border communities and hurt families.
