Stop Funding Department of Homeland Security Abuse

Sometimes the only way to stop a person or organization from perpetuating abuse is to hit them where it hurts–in their pocketbook.

It’s no secret that the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), largely through its agencies*, has been separating children from their parents and locking those children up.  It’s also no secret that there have been dozens and dozens of deaths in its agencies’ detention centers, and over 1,000 cases of reported sexual abuse against both adults and children, only a small fraction of which were formally investigated.**

It’s also no secret that President Donald Trump bypassed the U.S. congressional appropriations process by declaring a “national emergency” to channel military money to DHS to build his border wall.

But now it may be possible for the U.S. Congress to work to return to the balance of power created by the American founders to prevent governmental abuse. Congress is right now deciding DHS’s budget for the next fiscal year.

The clearest way to stop the unprecedentedly massive, out-of-control budget given to the DHS during the current administration is to let your senators know you do not support taxpayers’ money funding abuse. You can do this relatively easily by going to the link below:

  1. Dharma says:

    We should stop funding abuse or it’s all fault. I’ll sign.

  2. Miley Spears says:

    We should defund it altogether! What have they actually done that helped anything? President Trump is paranoid that’s the problem. He needs to get help not ruin America. I’ll go to the link.

  3. Michael Viviano says:

    I am pleased that my state’s Senators, the Honorable Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth, vigorously oppose this twattery.

  4. Tom T. Trucker says:

    The best protection America can have is citizens who are armed and know how to use them. You can’t depend on any agency to do that for you. We have the greatest military in the world. But once someone’s crossed the border, it’s up to us to protect ourselves.

  5. Anonymous says:

    So now we REALLY see The Loveshade family’s true colors. You’re against Homeland Security which protects us from foreign invaders? You want to have swarms of illegal aliens crossing our borders and doing mass shootings? You are a Terrorist Organization!

  6. Bobbie Schafer says:

    The terrorists are already inside our borders. There have been more cases of domestic terrorism and mass shootings than anything done by aliens who crossed the border.

  7. I Like Mike says:

    It’s Homeland Immaturity

    Stop funding the whole goverment maybe then they’ll stop!

    • Thanks for the link.

      I was against Homeland Security before it became an official part of the U.S. Government. I remember when then President George W. Bush said a big part of why the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack happened on the United States was because there were too many intelligence agencies, meaning they didn’t effectively communicate with each other. I agreed. There were too many intelligence agencies.

      Then, within a remarkably short time, the government formed another intelligence agency. That was Homeland Security.

      However, much as I dislike Homeland Security, I do believe in allowing free speech and discussion more than I believe in shouting someone down.
