Stop DeSantis!

Stop DeSantis!

Tell President Biden and Congress to denounce DeSantis’s and Abbott’s actions, and end Trump's border policies for good!

Florida governor Ron DeSantis may have committed human trafficking last week when he used taxpayer dollars to send migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. Texas governor Greg Abbott has already pulled a similar move twice in the last six months, shipping migrants to DC and New York.

President Biden and Congress must denounce these irresponsible (and potentially illegal) stunts — and recommit to pro-immigrant policies!

Why is this important?

DeSantis and Abbott both framed their actions as protests of President Biden’s immigration policy. The best way for Biden to respond to these fearmongering ‘own-the-libs’ tactics is to actually enact ethical immigration policies.

President Biden promised to end Trump’s Title 42 immigration policy, which claimed that the government could block asylum seekers from coming into the country because of the pandemic. But this draconian measure still stands because of a Trump-appointed federal judge.

Congress needs to throw all their weight behind actually ending this cruel policy. In the face of Republicans’ remarkably cruel treatment of immigrants, it’s time for Democrats in Congress to stand together, protect immigrant rights, and pass a law to end Title 42.

Tell President Biden and Congress to denounce DeSantis’s and Abbott’s actions, and end Trump's border policies for good!
