On March 15, 2021, Amnesty International USA joined 244 organizations in a letter to Congressional leaders to call for transformative change to bring justice and humanity to the U.S. immigration system. The letter urged lawmakers to cut funding for ICE and CBP’s overall budgets by at least 50%, reduce the ICE Custody Operations account by at least 75%, refuse to provide funding for border wall/barrier construction, and restrict DHS authority to transfer and reprogram funding to ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations account.
