We are deeply concerned about the mistreatment and abuse of migrants committed by Border Patrol agents and the continued impunity toward them. We are now in appropriations season, and encourage you to reach out to your senators and representatives (to find your elected officials’ contact info, visit https://www.commoncause.org/find-your-representative/). We ask that you encourage them to NOT expand funding of Border Patrol, but to instead invest in oversight and accountability measures. For a sample script, see Script 4 http://www.kinoborderinitiative.org/act/, “Oppose Expansion of Border Patrol/More Training and Accountability for Agents.” (If you have not visited the comedor or border recently, please call on your experiences in your community or the information contained in this newsletter and other sources of information.) Thank you for your advocacy for and with people in migration!
