Dear 5849376,

Tell the National Sheriffs' Association: Stop enabling Trump and Miller's hate

Donald Trump and Stephen Miller could make their nightmare of mass deportations a reality as early as next week.1 Reports of ICE officials preparing for attacks in cities with high immigrant populations are already growing. In far too many communities, ICE will have local law enforcement as willing partners. We must fight back.

ICE works with many local sheriffs to carry out deportations. The National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) not only supports jail to deportation programs like 287(g), but also works with anti-immigrant hate groups to push these policies on local jurisdictions.2

Trump and Miller's plan to deport millions will only work if sheriffs and other local law enforcement agencies continue to collaborate with ICE. Exposing the NSA's partnership with anti-immigrant hate groups and demanding that it stop encouraging sheriffs to do ICE's dirty work are critical steps to weakening Trump and Miller's deportation force and blocking their racist agenda.

Trump's latest threat to deport millions of immigrants comes straight out of Stephen Miller's white nationalist playbook. News of Miller's mass deportation plan first broke during the last DHS personnel purge when several officials, including former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, resigned after openly opposing Miller's agenda.3 Now with Mark Morgan, an anti-immigrant extremist and Trump-Miller loyalist, leading ICE, there is nothing stopping it from carrying out whatever racist and potentially illegal deportation plan Miller has in store.

The Trump-Miller administration is waging a war on our communities. While we continue to work on interventions at the federal level, we must also fight these anti-immigrant attacks locally and do everything we can to keep ICE out of our communities.

The NSA provides training and resources to local sheriffs, shaping the way they police our communities. A 2017 report revealed that anti-immigrant hate groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) systematically recruited sheriffs to advance its racist agenda.4 Leaders of the NSA have supported events hosted by FAIR and policies that deputize local police as ICE agents, encourage racial profiling and feed the deportation pipeline. That is unacceptable, and it needs to stop now.

The NSA should immediately cut ties with anti-immigrant hate groups and stop promoting policies that force sheriffs to harm and terrorize the communities they swore to protect. Speak out now to demand that the NSA stop enabling xenophobia and hate.
