#DefundHate: Stand up to ICE & CBP

Borders2.jpg

Tell Congress to #DefundHate and stand up to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The budget for ICE has increased by a billion dollars in the last two years, extending its reach well beyond the border. It already has enough taxpayer money to detain 350,000 to 400,000 asylum-seeking migrants. Every day, tens of thousands of people — including asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants — are detained by ICE and CBP has jurisdiction over two-thirds of the American population. Beyond its unprecedented reach into our daily lives, this agency is notorious for racial discrimination, use of excessive force, and illegal search and seizure — in short, for treating people trying to secure a better life for themselves as potential enemy combatants, rather than as humans with rights and dignity to be respected and upheld. Both ICE and CBP detain children, separate families, terrorize communities and have a long history of fiscal mismanagement.

    I have a dream… a dream that one day, we will see people from all nations as “us,” not “them.” A dream where people of all nations cooperate to help each other live in dignity. A dream where we recognize each other as world citizens, calling nonviolence the greatest form of strength, and violence the greatest sign of weakness.:

    “I pledge allegiance to the flags
    of all nations on Earth,
    and to the people they represent,
    one planet, at peace, united,
    with liberty and compassion for all.”

    Thanx for the great worx, I look forward…. “…We(e),…” are advancing the Evolution in it’s struggle against the corporate structure’s (la machine) convolution and it’s devolutionary direction. You, indivisible life and illimitable potential, and your worx go along way in that evolutionary direction, for, we can walk in nature’s balance, giving back to Earth’s abundance. All life are necessary threads in life’s fabric, we can’t allow to be torn asunder, as we followed none, we leave no footprints that will echo on, in all ways, always. reality
