Shame of the Union

by Lorella Praeli
ACLU Director of
Immigration Policy
and Campaigns


On the floor of the House of Representatives tonight [Tuesday, January 30], Donald Trump laid out his hateful, anti-immigrant agenda. And while he may have dressed it up in rhetoric that pundits find more palatable, we heard the dog whistles loud and clear.

Over the last year, Trump has given Immigration and Customs Enforcement free rein to terrorize immigrant communities who've worked hard to build lives here. And recently, ICE has arrested immigrant rights activists at higher rates, with harsher penalties. It sends a clear signal to an already targeted immigrant community: keep quiet, or you'll be next.

It's high time to put ICE back on its leash. This is urgent: Thousands of Dreamers who call this country home are facing arrest and deportation at this very moment. Add your name to stand strong against the Trump administration's culture of fear.

At tonight's [Tuesday, January 30] State of the Union, Trump wasn't the only one there with a racist agenda. When Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar asked police to arrest all Dreamers in attendance, he hammered home what we all already know to be true: This administration peddles hate, and it's an affront to the founding ideals of this country.

This administration is deliberately cultivating a climate of fear. Over the past year, many immigrants have decided to steer clear of courthouses, hospitals, and other public spaces, for fear of arrest and deportation. Imagine being too afraid to seek lifesaving medical treatment or to seek justice against an abusive partner because of the threat of ICE agents lurking around the corner.

Sign the petition at https://www.aclu.org/action to make clear we won't tolerate ICE abuses of power or the culture of fear they're working to create. Our union is stronger than this.

As Congress kicks the can down the road with the Dream Act, lives are on the line. We need to stand up to ICE's bullying - and stand for our constitutional rights.

Keep up the fight.
