“This decision is an outrageous misuse of resources. At the start of hurricane season, DHS is robbing hundreds of millions of dollars from disaster relief to fund a disaster of its own making. It is using vital funds to further some of its cruelest policies – putting asylum-seekers in harm’s way and detaining families and children in search of safety.
“Everyone has a fundamental right to humane treatment. The government must immediately abandon its plan to further its agenda of hate an exclusion.”
