Take Action for #NoBorderWall and equal protection under the law for the borderlands!

Background: The Trump Administration is mocking the law and the American people. Congress already gave Trump about $3 billion for border walls, but he wants more, so he’s raided about $1 billion from the military and intends to take even more. That money has already been awarded to profiteering border wall construction companies, even though the call for public comments on the project remains open!  

Next, Homeland Security waived 32 laws for new border walls in New Mexico and Arizona, bringing the total number of laws waived under this administration to a whopping 49. 

Please take action and tell them it’s not OK to impose lawless, wasteful walls!
