Sec. Mattis: Reject the illegal use-of-force order, and bring the troops home now!

The Trump administration issued an order authorizing troops at the border to use deadly force against asylum seekers. This is not only alarmingly dangerous, it violates the critical law that keeps the military completely separate from domestic law enforcement.

This is one of the most horrific things the Trump administration has ever done. Active-duty troops authorized to shoot people seeking refuge at the southern border not only terrorizes migrant families, it erodes our rule of law, and makes servicemembers political pawns. This is not just terrifying—it’s illegal and we cannot allow it to happen.

Sign now! Tell Sec. Mattis to make clear that U.S. troops cannot use any force against asylum seekers. Period. Bring the troops home immediately.

To Secretary Mattis,

We demand you reject the White House’s illegal order authorizing troops at the border to use lethal force and immediately end the deployment of troops at the U.S.-Mexico border. Our troops must not be authorized to hurt or kill those simply seeking safety and asylum at the border.
