To: Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and Rebecca Adducci, Detroit ICE Field Director
Tell Kirstjen Nielsen and Rebecca Adducci to stop separating families!
Last week, Donald Trump’s Deportation Force conducted its most aggressive immigration raid yet at a garden center in Sandusky, Ohio and took away more than 100 mothers and fathers. We must hold ICE accountable. Tell DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and ICE Field Office Director Rebecca Adducci to rein in their excessive attacks on hardworking Ohio families.
Why is this important?
Earlier this month, two hundred federal immigration enforcement agents descended upon Corso’s Flower and Garden Centers in Sandusky and Castalia, Ohio, with machine guns and K-9 dogs as helicopters circled overhead.
They were there to arrest and deport Ohioans who work hard and love their families, accusing them of immigration violations. All told, 114 Corso’s workers were arrested by ICE during the aggressive, SWAT-style operation.
Just a week later, they struck AGAIN, this time at a meatpacking plant in Massillon, Ohio, where another 100 agents arrested more than 100 workers.
Kirstjen Nielsen is the head of the Department of Homeland Security, and is responsible for running Donald Trump’s turbo-charged deportation machine.
Rebecca Adducci is the Field Office Director for Detroit ICE, with control over operations in Michigan and Ohio. Not only is she responsible for utilizing an outrageous show of government force in order to arrest and deport humble workers, but she has presided over the systematic separation of Ohio and Michigan families ever since the Trump Administration took office.
Raids like the one in Sandusky, Castalia, and Massillon are destroying Ohio and Michigan families, and those of us who disagree with what’s happening need to stand up and say it! Sign this petition to tell DHS Chief Kirstjen Nielsen and ICE Field Director Rebecca Adducci to rein in their excessive use of force and deportation practices that destroy families.
