The demand to “Abolish ICE” has gained tremendous traction recently, and we need to seize this momentum. Congress so far has not stopped our white supremacist president from terrorizing innocent people. So we must abolish I.C.E. by defying it and limiting its powers at the local level, even as we keep pressuring the federal government to find its conscience. Complicit politicians and profiteering corporations must be called out and pushed into action.
Join Rise and Resist for four actions in four days targeting local, state and federal government entities that enable ICE cruelty and the private companies that profit from detention. We will demand specific actions at every level to diminish ICE’s abuses of power.
