For decades, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have separated countless families, caused the deaths of people seeking refuge, and terrorized our communities. Stopping the flow of money to these agencies is an important step to ending systems of cruelty against immigrants. Join our training to learn more about how Congress funds ICE and CBP with our taxpayer dollars—and how you can advocate to defund ICE and CBP.
In this training, participants will learn:
- About the appropriations process and how it has led to the insane growth of ICE and CBP budgets
- Specific concepts like continuing resolutions, reprogramming, and transfers of appropriated funds, omnibus, and other relevant terminology.
- How to make connections between the detentions and deportations in our communities and funding decisions made in Congress.
- How to advocate for significant cuts to ICE and CBP
