The brutal policy of family separation has made blazingly apparent the racist, inhumane nature of US immigration policy. Even though Trump has signed a loop-hole ridden executive order against family separation, at best this will mean families will be reunited in cages. No human being is illegal, and not person should be in a cage for crossing the border.
DSA calls for the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). ICE cannot be reformed, it cannot be fixed. It was established 15 years ago by the George W Bush administration and it exists solely to implement a racist assault on our immigrant brothers and sisters through house raids, stakeouts at schools and workplaces, and the heartless rending of people from their families and homes. We will not accept anything less than its abolition.
DSA Locals across the country will be staging a week of events in solidarity with all immigrants calling for ICE abolition. Olympia will be supporting our comrades at the Northwest Detention Center Resistance in Tacoma, among other things. More details to come!
