Vamos4PR Responds to DHS Transfer of $271 Million to Pay for More Trump Immigrant Detention

This statement can be attributed to Shirley Aldebol, Vice President 32BJ SEIU and VAMOS4PR steering committee member.

“The president’s push to pile on more pain, misery and terror on Brown and Black communities in the United States is reprehensible. Taking funding from FEMA to feed inhumane enforcement and detention of families just as another unpredictable storm heads to Puerto Rico and threatens families on the island is dangerous and reckless."
