Tell Governor Doug Ducey To Keep the Arizona National Guard Out of Donald Trump’s Deportation Force
The White House has drafted a memo calling for the Arizona National Guard to round up hundreds of thousands of immigrants in Arizona. But this can’t happen without Governor Doug Ducey's approval. We demand that Governor Doug Ducey keeps our state’s National Guard out of Donald Trump’s Deportation Force.
Why is this important?
According to the Associated Press, the Trump administration is considering a plan mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up millions of undocumented immigrants in states along the southern border. This includes states like California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas; as well as states adjacent to border states, like Oregon, Nevada, Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Utah, and Louisiana.
Governors have the final approval on National Guard deployments. This means Donald Trump’s plan won’t work without the support of Governors.
So if we want to stop the systematic removal of millions of immigrants from the United States by the National Guard, we need to make sure Governors in the targeted states hear from their constituents.
Please join with me and demand that Governor Doug Ducey does not authorize the Arizona National Guard from joining Donald Trump’s Deportation Force.
