In the last month, hundreds of thousands of people have risen up in outrage at the stories of mothers and fathers separated from their children, internment camps for immigrant families fleeing violence and seeking asylum. We have seen the cruelty of ICE, the institution that carries out unjust anti-immigrant policies and persecutes parents for daring to dream of giving their children a better life.
We cannot wait for the White House and Congress to act. On July 31, we are taking action to #AbolishICE by targeting the institutions ICE relies on to function day in and day out.
**Mayors, local police departments, and county commissioners allow ICE to use local jails to detain families.
**Private tech companies develop their surveillance technology.
**Airlines that deport people away from their families.
**Schools, DMVs and hospitals that share confidential records with ICE to persecute undocumented people.
It is our moral duty to refuse to be complicit with ICE’s deportation machine at every level and demand that the institutions we are part of do the same! #WeWontBeComplicit
