#DefundThemAll Action

On Friday, Sept. 11, 2020 SA Stands joined the Defund SAPD coalition to say abolish and defund every level of immigration and law enforcement, from the police to ICE to Border Patrol, as all of it hurts and criminalizes our communities. Since 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security has been created and funded at an outrageous level. It does not provide us security, in the same way that the police do not provide us public safety. While SAPD and the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office murder Black San Antonians, Border Patrol is murdering immigrants at the border and ICE is tearing apart families and deporting asylum seekers to their death. While some of our community members are served a death sentence by being jailed during COVID-19, so are immigrant members of our community in detention. Our local law enforcement deliberately collaborates with ICE, far beyond what is required by state law. We can’t allow this to continue, so we marched on our streets!

This event was part of Day 4 of #10DaysToDefund. Visit bit.ly/defundSAPD for information. See more event photos on Facebook.
