PRESS CALL: Activists Behind the Grassroots Push to Oppose the Funding of Trump’s Deportation Force and Border Wall to Keep Up Pressure as Spending Deal Nears
In early April, CREDO, United We Dream, ACLU, America’s Voice Education Fund and others delivered 290,000 petitions to leaders from both parties on Capitol Hill to call on them to stop the Trump Administration’s request for a massive $3 billion increase in immigration enforcement. The demands: stop the unnecessary, offensive and costly border wall; no to an expansion of detention capacity; and no to an expansion of deportation agents.
As the White House and Congress near a deal on spending, organizations behind these mobilizing efforts will host a press call, tomorrowWednesday, April 26 at 12:30pm EST to discuss the negative impacts of Trump’s immigration policies and the latest updates on the funding fight.
- Heidi Hess, Senior Campaign Manager, CREDO
- Ronald Newman, Director of Strategic Initiatives, American Civil Liberties Union
- Cristina Jimenez, Executive Director and Co-Founder of United We Dream
- Frank Sharry, Executive Director, America’s Voice Education Fund (Moderator)
