Our Voices Unite in Washington, Reminding Congress #Not1Dollar for ICE

#NOT1DOLLAR means no more money to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). What we, the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM and FIRM Action), want instead is our communities to be united and free. Ours is a vision for immigration policies that are grounded in full citizenship, freedom, and family unity.

Check out what happens when our organizers from across the country unite in Washington, D.C. for a day of action, reminding Congress #NOT1DOLLAR. Hear voices from our policy wonks, our impacted neighbors, and powerful grassroots leaders — and join the fight for the civil and human rights of all immigrants.

For more about FIRM and FIRM Action, a national coalition of 44 grassroots organizations from 32 states that fights for the civil & human rights of all immigrants, check out https://vision.firmaction.org/.
