We Are Here to Defund Hate

We Are Here to Defund Hate

The Defund Hate Campaign is led by a coalition of organizations that represent directly impacted immigrant communities, faith leaders, and civil and immigrant rights advocates.

We are committed to divestment from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), agencies that tear apart loved ones and harm our communities. Instead, we want our tax dollars used to strengthen our families and communities. We are committed to investment in education, housing, green infrastructure and health care programs that create thriving communities.

Our elected officials say they care about our communities but, at the same time, they choose to fund immigration enforcement, deadly immigration jails and border militarization. Members of Congress must vote against wasting taxpayer dollars on the abusive and deadly immigration enforcement system. They must be held accountable. They must show up for the immigrant community.

Defund Hate
Campaign Goals

  • Decrease the money going to ICE and CBP
  • Demand investments in our communities that build our people up and help us all thrive
  • Shift the political landscape away from constant funding increases for ICE and CBP and an enforcement-only response to migration

The Defund Hate Campaign has blocked nearly $12 billion from ICE and CBP to date. We’re committed to blocking more and redirecting that investment to strengthen families and communities.
