Your DBG for today is to help spread the word about undocumented residents’ legal rights, so we may protect our communities in this new and horrifying era of Trump.
Since February 9th, there has been a wave of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in sanctuary cities, as a direct result of President Trump’s anti-immigration policies.

One piece of hopeful news is that, partially in thanks to people like you who have donated in record numbers and record amounts since the election, the ACLU is establishing a rapid-response team to fight deportations. Read more about it here, and about immigrants’ rights here, and here:
Get this information to as many people as you can. Undocumented Americans touch all of our lives and it’s crucial we protect ourselves and our fellow humans.
