Donald Trump and Stephen Miller are terrorizing migrants and people seeking refuge at the U.S. southern border.
News just broke: Trump wanted to fortify the U.S.-Mexico border wall with a “water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators… electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh.” He also suggested border troops “shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down”. This is horrifying and dangerous.
Whether we can actually see it or not, Trump is building his wall around the United States. U.S. troops stationed at the border with weapons in hand, concentration camps to separate families simply seeking refuge, new policies every day to keep people out.
And now, Trump just sent 2,000 more servicemembers on top of the 5,000 active and reserve servicemembers already deployed to the southern border in their anti-immigrant battle — even though the military is legally supposed to be kept separate from domestic law enforcement.
We need answers NOW. Will you tell the Department of Defense Inspector General to investigate the use of the U.S. military at the southern border?
