I have disturbing news.

I have disturbing news about the Trump administration to share with you.

Recently, I discovered that $10 million was taken from the budget of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to prop up ICE's detention centers on our southern border.

This comes as a massive hurricane bears down on the east coast, and as reports show that upwards of 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.

That's why, this week, I went on Rachel Maddow to blow the whistle on this outrage.

While lives hang in the balance, the Trump administration is moving disaster preparedness dollars to cover the costs of their immoral detention facilities where families were separated, where children were put in cages.

This is exactly why we must take back Congress. Abuse of power and misuse of resources that puts lives at risk is unacceptable.

Donate to the Blue Wave Project. Outrages like this cannot go on. We must win in November.
