Donald Trump and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continue to dehumanize and abuse our immigrant neighbors, friends and family members. Immigration agents are holding migrants in concentration camps, separating children from their families, and coordinating raids targeting immigrant neighborhoods and establishments across the country.

It's important to remember that even though immigration raids are not happening at the scale Trump said they would be, ICE is still launching indiscriminate round ups in areas with high immigrant populations. With detention centers grossly overcrowded, ICE agents are planning to use hotels to temporarily detain immigrants they capture. And it's not the first time ICE has used this tactic.

According to a FOIA request, at least seven hotel chains have collaborated with ICE in the past. One hotel, Motel 6, was even slammed with lawsuits for sharing client information with the agency. As consumers and customers, we have the power to throw a wrench in ICE operations by forcing hotel chains to cut ties with the agency. Our activism is already working.

Several hotels, including Marriott International, Hilton Hotels, Choice Hotels, and Hyatt Hotels Corporation, are doing the right thing and pledging to reject ICE requests to jail immigrants on their properties. This is an important step in the right direction. But we need to keep the pressure on to push other hotel chains to go on record and make sure those that have released statements keep their commitments, and ensure that franchisees and staff do the same.

The #NoHotelsforICE team is following up with hotel executives this week. Add your name now to join the fight. The more of us who raise the alarm, the more power we build to resist the raids, weaken ICE and end the agency's dangerous collaboration with hotels.

Trump and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continue to dehumanize and abuse our immigrant neighbors, friends and family members. ICE is still launching indiscriminate round ups in areas with high immigrant populations. With detention centers grossly overcrowded, ICE agents are planning to use hotels to temporarily detain immigrants they capture. Your company should have no part in this. As consumers and customers, we urge you to refuse to let ICE use your properties to detain immigrants and ensure your commitment is communicated publicly and to the board of directors. We urge you to direct staff and franchisees to reject all ICE requests and hold them accountable if they don't.
