Troops Off the Border!


    Hosted by People’s Defense Initiative and 5 others

    “Protest Trump’s illegal order sending active duty troops to the border in a Midterm election ploy to energize his base. Now he has upped the ante by authorizing them to use lethal force! US law forbids the military to be involved in civilian law enforcement. Asylum and immigration laws are strictly civilian laws which are enforced by the Department of Homeland Security. Neither the soldiers taken from their families during this holiday season, nor their commanders who understand the law and constitution, want to be deployed on the Southern Border. Join us in demanding that they be returned to their bases and their families. If we allow this precedent to be set, it will result in the further erosion of our Constitutional Rights and liberties.

    Our Demands:
    Troops Off the Border; Demilitarize Our Communities!
    Respect Asylum and Refugee Laws!
    End US Imperialism Which Creates Refugees in Latin America!
