End Cruelty toward Immigrants: Action Items



Raise your voice - resist the ICE raids!

Stories are cascading through the media about the appalling abuse inside internment camps for migrant people. Debates about whether to call detention centers “concentration camps” are raging on social media.

It’s time to take action against these horrors.

What you can do:

  • Call Senator Daines, Congressman Gianforte, and Senator Tester today and each day next week. Please be polite.

  • Tell them that the abuse of immigrants seeking asylum in internment camps and at the hands of ICE is inexcusable. It needs to end now.

  • Send one of these postcards to your legislators. We are recommending that the postcards with the Bible verses go to Sen. Daines and Rep. Gianforte, since they frequently talk about their Christian faith. These could also be useful for faith communities who want to reinforce their beliefs of justice and mercy.

  • Get friends to call and send postcards to their legislators. PLEASE make sure all comments are respectful! You can access the postcards here. Use the download button or right click (PC), or hit Option + click (Mac), to download the file. For best results, we recommend having them printed on card stock at a professional printer.
    ***Note that each postcard should have a unique message to your legislator, not just your signature. Mass-produced cards with identical messages are often disregarded.

Talking points:
- Children are still being separated from parents, which is inflicting deep trauma.

- More internment camps are being built, and detainment centers are intentionally being crowded to overflowing to create inhumane conditions that foster disease.

- Private contractors who are President Trump’s associates are profiting from migrant people’s misery and abuse.

- We should not be putting law-abiding asylum seekers in abysmal conditions.
