Sign the petition: No hotel should enable the mass deportation machine


Trump and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continue to dehumanize and abuse primarily Black and brown immigrants. Family separation has taken the form of concentration camps, separating children from their families as they come into the U.S., and coordinated raids target mostly immigrant neighborhoods and establishments across the country.

As detentions centers fill up, we have reason to believe that the following seven U.S. hotel chains will aid Trump’s racist anti-immigrant agenda by collaborating with ICE to hold detained immigrants:
Best Western Hotels and Resorts
Drury Hotels
G6 Hospitality (Motel 6)
Hilton (Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites)
InterContinental Hotels Group (Holiday Inn)
Red Roof
Wyndham Hotels (Days Inn, Ramada, Super 8, Howard Johnson, La Quinta).

What’s more? Seven of the above hotels (all but Marriott and G6 Hospitality) have previously contracted with ICE. And, G6 was slammed with lawsuits for sharing client information with ICE. We, as consumers, must put pressure on these hotel chains to not collaborate with ICE, which continues to separate thousands of immigrant families.

Sign the petition: Demand U.S. hotel chains end their complicity in family separation and not turn their hotels into de facto detention centers.

Keep Park Rangers from Being Misused As Border Pawns!


The Department of the Interior is continuing a secretive program to pull park rangers and police from lands across the nation and send them to patrol the border. Put a stop to it!

Why This Matters
This Fourth of July, Trump raided millions of dollars in park funds to host himself a lavish and absurd personal celebration. Now, his Department of the Interior is continuing this misuse of park resources.
Never in our nation’s history have park rangers and police been used as border security. This unprecedented move is harming our most treasured spaces and wildlife, and putting the safety of park visitors at risk.
Parks across the nation need more funding and staffing. There is absolutely no good reason to relocate staff from their homes and inappropriately order them to work outside of their job description as unofficial border security.
This move is a clear attempt by the Trump administration to subvert the law to perpetuate its racist agenda by ordering park staff to patrol the border.
US Representative Raúl Grijalva, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, accurately described this action as “a sustained attack on the rule of law.” Stating “treating law enforcement agents like the president’s personal toys is a hallmark of a banana republic, not a functioning democracy.” Grijalva’s district is on the border.
Will you speak up to put a stop to this blatant misuse of park resources?
