Stop Trump’s unconstitutional federal police force

The petition to Congress reads:

“Use every tool at your disposal to stop the Trump administration from deploying secret federal police on the streets of American cities.”


Since mid-July, secretive federal police forces in Portland, Oregon have been detaining peaceful protestors and whisking them away in unmarked cars. Incredibly, Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has admitted that they are proactively arresting people who haven’t committed a crime.

Joe Biden just called it an “egregious tactic” and Oregon’s Attorney General called it “kidnapping.” They’re both right.

Now, Trump is threatening to expand the program to Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland, Albuquerque and other cities any day now. Congress needs to intervene to put a stop to this – and fast.

Tell Congress: Put an immediate stop to Trump’s unconstitutional federal police force.

Democrats in Congress are pursuing various efforts to put a stop to this unconstitutional abuse of power.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a new bill that would “require on-duty federal agents to display not just the name of their agency but also the individual agent’s last name and identification number.” And Senator Jeff Merkley is pursuing a similar effort as part of the National Defense Authorization Act.

Whether it is through hearings, appropriations or standalone legislation, we need Congress to fight back NOW and do everything in its power to put an immediate stop to Trump’s unconstitutional federal police force.

Sign if you agree: Congress must stop Trump’s unconstitutional federal police force
