Rep. Carbajal: In these Days of Awe, We Must #DefundHate

During these Days of Awe our Jewish communities will say: “We remember and we reject attacks on immigrants.” As your Jewish constituents, we call on you to join us in that commitment. We know that you are a leader on many issues that are important to us in your district and the entire country. We know that you understand the urgency and necessity for action as our immigrant communities face increased threat and violence in our current systems. We therefore call on you to continue being a leader by signing on to #Defund Hate.

This year, on the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, American Jews are mourning and taking action to stop attacks on immigrant families.

At the same time, the Trump administration is continuing to ask Congress for billions more dollars to escalate its cruelty on immigrant families and communities — including raids, cages, more family separation. On the holiest days of the Jewish year, how can we ask for forgiveness while our government commits crimes against immigrants in our names?

Representative Carbajal alongside other Members of Congress can help jam the gears of the deportation machine by increasing spending accountability and restricting funding to ICE and CBP, the rogue agencies that carry out Trump’s cruel immigration policies. 

As Rep. Carbajal’s constituents, we can do our part by raising our collective voice so he knows he will have our support when he acts boldly. Add your name to the petition urging Rep. Carbajal to #DefundHate to usher in new year grounded in justice.
